The Jewish Song

My blog is mostly devoted to the 60's, but Anne Frank and the other Jews in hiding are very significant people to me. I wrote this poem for them after reading Anne's diary. It is called "The Jewish Song".

Every day we lived in fear.
Fear the Gestapo would find us here.
We dreamed some day the war would be over.
Our lives turned,
Our hearts burned.
Even if we made one sound,
we were camp bound.
Oh, how thankful we should be
That history does not always repeat itself
