Words Immortalized (In Memory of Miep Gies)

Some heros

Do not see themseleves

As heros

She was one

A woman

Who risked

Her life

To protect her friends

A little girl

Who died

But whose legend live

On in large part

Because of her.

A woman determined

To try and do the

Best to make

A young life

Seem not

Been lived in vein.

Miep Gies

Called home to Glory

Earlier this week

A hundred years of life

And yet in an eterninty just

A drop in the bucket

But her work lives on

In the words immoratlized

In one young girls story.

Who never got to realize her dream

While alive

But in death

Her story lives on.

Let Us Not Forget

Today Sunday April.11.2010 is Holocaust Rememberance Day may we never forget

Let us not forget

What others went through

The one’s that lived

And died

At the hands of a time

Where evil ruled

Like so many times

Before.

Let us not forget

The attrocities of yesterday

A single man tried

To wipe out

An entire people

Simply because they were.

Let us not forget

The attrocities of the Holocaust

And that a single light

Can begin to stamp out darkness.
