Why ( a holocaust poem)

I wake up in the morning
and the pain begins,
Starvation, beatings, disease
when will it ever end...

There is blood on my elbows
and blood on my knees,
my clothes are torn
I just want to be free...

I am what I am
I guess thats why I'm here,
I've been here three months
And I'm numb with fear...

I pray to God
and ask him why,
what did I do
to deserve to die...

Metallic Beans

the soldier smiled at me
but his smiles were false
I knew by intuition
that the night would be uneasy
things would be bloody
with metallic beans worn
around waste and neck
some in pockets and arms
I was sure the beans were gifts
brought for each man’s heart
in village of hard truth
