Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

Auschwitz-Birkenau, January 1945.

 

 Auschwitz

07 January 2011

By DavidWallace

 

 

No more the wretched cries of loss are heard within this place

This godforsaken abattoir, this slaughter house of shame

We walk here with the ghosts of they who never left these walls

Remembered in a distant land with one eternal flame.

 

No birds sing here nor pass in flight, Life ceases at the gate

The silence of the grave abides within this fence of hate

And even from the hardest heart it begs the question why

The ovens scream their dreadful truth and draw tears from the eye.

 

A cold and dreadful ambiance dumbfounds the passerby

Imagined sounds of shuffling feet of those about to die

The chambers clean and empty now, no sign of what befell

What evil mindless tyranny designed this ordered Hell

 

What awful mind, what twisted thought, imagined such as this

Where hid the soul, of all they who, betrayed with Judas kiss

The tears of thousands cannot cleanse, this stain that mars the land

Nor Pilates basin, wash the blame, from zealots bloodied hand

 

Where stood we then, who stare in shame, when first was heard the toll

These pain and anguish haunted halls, ring guilt throughout the soul

Look on in shame, forget not all, we witnessed here today

Lest rage and hatred, land marked here, will never go away
