A Eulogy of Sorts – PT1

A Life

Victim of a holocaust
consuming whatever hope
of trust, of joy, or peace
life offers us at birth

So much pain
is hard to look at
unbearable to feel

So much shame
must burn the soul
and leave despair

Walls so high
intended to protect
only imprison, isolate

And what is left outside
but barren fields
the sound of weeping
the burden of regret
