Never again

It happened we know it did,
One culture virtually annihilated,
For being different that's why,
One man blamed everything on them,
Thought of them as sub human,
Something to get rid off,
Spouting evil his tenticles reaching far and wide,
Others started to believe his evil,
They where shoved into ghettos,
Made to wear a yellow star,
It was not enough he wanted them dead,
Walked to pits and shot dead,
Shoved into cattle cars going to camps,
Left or right ment life or death,
Gas chambers at the ready,
Romani gypsies, homosexuals those physically and mentally disabled murdered too,
God why????
His name is well known,
Those murdered their names forgotten,
Prey to all the gods of the world ..... never again.

About this poem

77 years ago Auschwitz was liberated. What was found was unbelievable the suffering the death the walking skeletons. Some didn't believe what was been shown and told. But it did happen and it must never happen again. Tell your children your grandchildren the future generations need to know so it is never forgotten.

Tracy Mcfayden

I'm 56 single mum to two 20+ lads. I used to craft and make jewellery but due to rheumatoid arthritis I had to stop. In 2020 when i was forced to stay home due to being immunosuppressive I was bored. One night having flash backs about the day I had to put my dog to sleep I started getting all these thoughts so wrote it down and it became my first freestyle poem and those words still come. I have my book simple poetry waiting to be published as an ebook on kobo and I am nearly finished with my second one simply poetry. I love horror movies especially zombie, I also believe in the spirit world and used to read tarot cards. I love dogs and have a Jack Russell called butch. more…

    Tracy, this is a heart felt poem, not many could write about, we do live in a very sad world and it continues that way. But the power of One can make it better !
