Does he see her
the girl in RED
with a pretty head
not yet an adult
but already guilty
it's because she's a Jew
made ragged and filthy.
Can he save her
 no he cannot
your war she fights alone
uncertainty bestowed
innocent and forgotten
roaming around
her dinner now rotten. 
Will he help her
perhaps so
with a one way ticket
her destiny awaits
a chamber of false hope
a showered genocide
made with hydrogen cyanide.
Can he feel her
cold soft baby skin
she's not hurting now
made forever young
poisoned little lungs
in this world
her life went unsung........

Oh this is perhaps the most painful part of that entire film. And he never even knew she was. Saddest part of all. This speaks to the innocence of so many lost to cruel tormentors. Evil which destroys beauty in the name of... I cannot even fathom the what. Powerful piece. And so harshly yet beautifully described. They all deserve this kind of tender remembrance.

thank you.....
I could hardly get through Schindler's List... The inhumanity of man to our own kind is evidence that this world is not going to last. I loved that now her life is not "unsung". We sing the life of the ill fated by remembering their loss, (our loss).
I will say that I believe that one day we will all see that her life and all of human life will be called into ballance and the tally shall be a fair one...
Thank you for this touching write Muse!
Be well.

Horrible....hatred for race, religion, sexual orientation, etc...is the lit match to the gasoline that ignites destruction.....

I was drawn to poem by the title and when I saw the picture, I had to comment, Muse. This is such a powerful, yet passionate poem. Do you mean God won't save her? But he didn't hurt her, the mad people did, and that is something we all have to bear in mind: this can - and does - happen EVERYWHERE.

it was directed towards man kind...will he...can he...save her? But once again....he turns his back.. read more
This is an unerringly powerful and tragic theme you attempt to capture with such grace and empathy here; the girl in the read coat... I have seen Shindler's List many times (In Hebrew school and in public school) it is so deeply moving and heart wrenching each time I see it. You've captured the moment with masterful poetic finesse here, sending this beautiful and doomed little girl to the gas chambers that stood as the only hope of escape at the end of each hopeless day... the ending is perfect, so haunting and poignant. "In this world her life went unsung..." Brilliant poem, Muse.

Beautiful poem! I didn't watch the movie. But I love the way you told the story. I can tell it must have been touching. Made me realize a lot of things.

This poem has such an impact on you when you read it, it makes me feel so angry that our world cannot co-operate, and everyone wants to be one up on everyone else... Very powerful.
