Who Am I Now?


Poem Commentary

well i wrote this in school for all the survivors of the holocaust....and all of the people that lost their lives to it....i just wanted to write this for them....enjoy....

Who Am I Now?


We all wear the same mask and we feel the same pain

but yet we are all alone.

We live for one thing,one thing we will fight for


I have changed into another person, just like everyone else here.

Here in this concentration camp

we will never be the same people ever again

for our souls have been invaded by darkness

never to see the light again

I look around and see those intimidating chimneys and feel sadness

I know that is where people are dying at this very minute

still, I have no control over what is happening, for I am only one person.

No one knows what to feel anymore

should I feel anger, sorrow, pain, or strength?

Those are questions that pulse through out veins.

We walk around like corpses and look up at those tall barbed wire fences.

Will we ever be free, and walk down that long dirt road again?

We try to act strong but we are terrified inside.

I wear the mask of a captured Jew

as I walk past... the gas chamber.

Very good write alot of emotion and soul in this one I love it keep up the great work.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
