YOUR WERE NOT THERE & LAST PRAYER,

 

Your were not there

 

If you never saw

the eyes

surprised, stunned, frozen

 

If you never heard

the cry, the scream

the moan, the groan

 

If you never smelled

the odour of gushing blood

the stench of gas en burning flesh

if you never felt

the blow, the cudgel, the lash

the shot body falling

 

If you never tasted

the fear, the fright

the life slowly going out of you

 

If you did not :

see

hear

smell

feel

taste

 

Then

you were not there.

 

 

Last prayer

 

I,

of little account

in the Valley of the Shadow of Death

hanging on the barbed wire

to Thee I speak :

withold

don’t allow their plot to succeed

prevent

my people’s extinction

don’t let my people be finiished

I beg Thee !
