Do You Know?



Do You Know?
Do you know
What its like
Not to be bored
For the first time?

Do you know
What its like
To grind your
Bones together
Till you can
No longer walk?

Do you know
What its like
To be made
To leave
Your own home?

Do you know
What its like
To know that
Your grandparents
Were gassed ?

Do you know
What its like to see
The number still
Tatooed on your
Aunt's arm?

Do you know
What its like
To have a dead
Brother who is
Always
With of you?

Do you know
What its like
To burn the supper
And have a
Heart attack?

Do you know
What its like
To have a gun
Pointed at you
As you sit
In a police car?

Do you know
What its like
To have your skull
Smashed by your
Husband?

Do you know
What its like
To resign your life
And be totally
Alone?

Do you know
What its like
To feel your aunt's
Stroke at the moment
Of her death ?

Unfortunately,
I know and
I hope you never
Have to know.

My dear Esti, this is a powerful poem! I was stunned by it the first time you posted it ( It was the first poem I read by you), it still effects me profoundly. May God give you the power of endurance to withstand all this!
((Big fond hugs)))
