Life is nothing
My life is empty
Beaten every waken day

Life is gone
My life was taken away
Pulled away from my family

Life is a hassle
My life is tough
Struggling to stay alive

To stay alive
I must work
Be bossed around

To stay alive
I must take the punishment
For being weak and hurt

Being weak
Not something I planned
They made me this way

No food
No water
No life

This life is not my own
This life is not fair
This life is not a life

I know, the Holocaust is a really weird thing to be writing a poem about, but it was written when we were learning about the Holocaust in my English and History class. The poem is in the point of view of a Jewish child.
