I am silent.
I am not thinking,
As they believe
My mind is blank.
It cannot comprehend.
Immediately after,
Smiles come up,
Voices are raised,
Most pass it off
As something of the past.
But my smile is forced,
My voice barely comes.
For I am now a witness,
And I will not forget

*********

They ask me
What’s wrong
I should be
The one asking
Asking if they
Are blind
Are deaf
Are mentally ill
To not understand
What they’ve done
That they’ve become
Witnesses
They have
Seen
Heard
Cried over
The sufferings
Of the Holocaust
Which is something
That should
Never
Never
Be forgotten
