Description: I believe every victim of the Holocaust, whose innocent lives were abruptly taken away only by means of practicing their chosen religion, deserves a poem dedicated in memory of everything they went through...although this isn't the right poem to acknowledge their courage and strength.
Actually, it's German, isn't it? Crystal night? Again, you tackle something in tribute to others, which I think is a great sentiment and again, you honor them. The difficulty with a poem like this is that it's an historical piece, long before your time . . . and that shines through here. Now, if you tied it in and told the story of someone you knew or met, it might make it a little stronger. But that aside, because really . . . you can write about anything you fancy . . . this was an excellent poem. Once again you show surprising depth for one so tender in years . . .
This is a beautiful poem well chosen. True that it's not the right poem but it has to start from somewhere and you made that move. I love this poem.
Two things i'd like to point out though. One is the spelling and the other is just a suggestion before it actually comes out of my head. I'm a very fast forgetter if that's even an english word but oh well. Let me point it out.
Firstly, it's "synagogue" you probably typed it wrong accidentally.
Secondly, i think "The stars cried the blackest tears tonight" it should be " the stars cried the blackest tears that night." You're talking bout something of the past, it cannot happen in the future.
I think the title is dutch, right? I know night in dutch is nacht, but i don't know tell me if i am wrong.
I basically love your poem because it represents something important and that you basically structure the poem well although there were times you fell off balance with the rhythm but it's okay, i didn't know till my second read. lol.
Anyhow, good job. Looking forward in reading more of your poetry.
