“In life, unlike chess, the game continues after checkmate”- Isaac Asimov

A girl that never feared
A boy that never accepted
The silver chain around her neck
and the monster that world created

She wore her difference every day
The whispers and yells
that the boy would say
words to actions
blood would fall
but yet the girl would stand tall

The demons that bore in is soul
grasped the chain that held her faith
pleading eyes beg for mercy
he left her there growing cold

The star the symbol
still lies on her chest
and sins and murder fill the rest

The author's comments:
This is a piece written on the basics of the Holocaust. How people hated each other for stupid reasons and how it seemed okay because they were different.
