Shades drawn over the Windows, birds haven’t risen quite yet, all is still.
I close my eyes for what feels like moments my clock reads 6:15, when I open them again it reads 6:35.
I’ve got to get up it’s almost time to leave but no matter how much I search inside of me I can’t find a reason to keep going.
I know a child should not be saying this. I thought the same so I went to find the little girl inside of me so she might point out the rainbow in all this rain because my eyes see as if they’ve seen 70 years worth of pain.
I search high and low all I heard was silence.
I wonder where had she gone or was the silence always there and I was to busy wanting to be a grown up to care.
And I know I am only 16 but, every night I lie myself down to sleep my bones groan in misery as if their carrying the weight of the world.
My feet shrink away into the covers at the slightest breeze. My bladder holds up like a house made of straw on a California beach.
And I know I am only 16 but… it sure doesn’t feel that way.
If I am not worth your time then you are not worth mine.
If you have to make an excuse to make your wrongs fall on me then you are not to be trusted.
If you can not stand with me in hard times then do not expect to stand with me in the good times.
If I am valued less then strangers even though my face reflects yours then you are not worth any of my love.
If I ask for nothing but, you expect everything, I will give you back the amount I’ve asked of you…nothing.
If you can not treat me with the same level of importance I administer to you; our acquaitanceship has expired.
I’ve wasted so much time, effort, and tears on you and people of your kind.
Enough is enough, this is my life and you need to see your way out.
In response to the people who refuse to acknowledge the holocaust happened.
I can’t believe you would think such a thing. Let alone have the audacity to utter them.
” The holocaust wasn’t real. ”
Are you out of your damned mind!
How dare you spit on the lives of millions!
How dare you deny their anguished cries!
How can you discount the lives of 11 million people and scorn the remaining 3.6million! 900,000 jews out of 6 million were left!
How can you believe it’s a hoax on the notion that if this had happened; Where is the uprising? Aren’t they angry, why have so little of them spoken out?
I ask you. Had you seen a newborn burned alive would you be able to tell anyone without the child’s screaming plaguing your mind?
The countless days spent fleeing the embrace of sleep, knowing all to well soon the images of your own children’s splattered brains on the very same pavement they had once biked on. Would you be able to swallow that, like they do?
Hiding under piles of sheets become something of the norm. The muggy fog and murky ground is the true monstrosity. Mothers remains thrown into the flames by the same boys they had raised. Could you do the same?
Would you pledge to a country promising freedom when freedom was a broken song that you couldn’t sing?
Take heed in these words if you have nothing good to say, just don’t speak!
