hitler and girl child

a little girl grows up

to find out the man

she had once adored

was a megalomaniac

who snuffed out

six million lives

does she feel the

stain of the horror

he inflicted, now

inflicts her?

does she have nightmares

about choices she makes

and question every pull

her heart leads her to?

we humans are fearsome

we inflict pain upon others

we torture body, mind and soul

not for the sake of pure survival

but for power over one another

holding love hostage

hate becomes an emperor

without mercy, ruling with

an iron fist of evil.

i see hate

i see evil

men who behave as monsters

women who kill their young

children who torture another

i question my own existence

i see nothing i can do

feeble attempts laughable

i plead, yell, cry and scream

please, someone help me

cease being human.
