Helga Deen ,1925-1943

Helga Deen  (1925-1943)   (Sentanka)

Mit achtzehn ermordet
Helga Deen im KZ Sobibór
Nur Tagebuch und Briefe

War alles was von ihr blieb
Ihr Andenken aber bleibt 


Murdered at eighteen
Helga Deen at Sobibór 
Only letters and diary

Was all that remained of her
But her memory remains


Helga Deen en Sobibor
Asesinado a dieciocho años
Sólo cartas y un diario

Fue todo lo que quedaba 
Pero su memoria sigue siendo

                     today that I'm
                     years older than him

                     how he bragged about being
                     my firstborn brother

Salty Air

Warm nights by the sea Salty air enters windows Full moon's reflection Guiding light on the ocean Gentle breeze ruffles palm trees

Three Precious Gifts

Fill my life with love.
Gift of friendships rare and deep.
Back in my hometown.
Reunited with them all.
I will make my life here now.

Baby brother's back.
Once more in my life to stay.
Let me make music.
Write a poem,make a craft.
Use my talents I'm blessed with.

Silver crested star.
Santa says to be myself.
Do not waste my time.
Creativity should flow.
Use my hands,my mind,my heart.

Ye Stay On Track

As the earth swings back
Brothers I say stay on track
Follow Master’s Plan
Sisters don’t let man change you
For they all should worship you

dont want to look to god to pray cause he has taken your friends and 
companions and family so you say why should i remain another day you wish to 
leave  and leave your family alone to cry and atone for your sins although it will 
always end and never begin again you want to live but you daily killing kids 
selling  them weedand things that excede gods will things that make ppl crazy an 
enough to fight and even kill like the man who killed his family and now hes 
alone.
