The Vanishing Point

At the vanishing point

They have passed

To be gassed,

Leaving us

To a world

That forever now must,

Not forget

How the place

Of no return

Has been crossed,

And we none are

The same

For hate’s shadow’s

Been cast.

In the name of those

Vanished

Who shall not be forgot,

We can vow to hold hope,

And let compassion

Outlast.

    • May we never. Especially given how too many people are willing to … if only by how complacent they are with hate, division, persecution, and harm of whomever they see as ‘other.’ Thanks, my friend.

    • Yes. And we must work together to end hate were it (still) raises its head, for we know how it can energize the weak-of-character who feed on fear, to use hate and violence to put down others in order to feel better about themselves.
      We can stop such atrocities from (continuing) to repeat, because most of us are better than that and because history should teach us not only what is possible to do, but what we should not ever allow.
      Thank you for this comment, Na’ama
