Remembering Germany during and after the war


In 1945 “the war is over” was announced

People cheered hoping for peace abound

Reality proved nothing was over in the land

Instead we were evicted from our homeland

Where could we go? Who wanted us?

We were distributed in the West without fuss

We found more anguish not peace, we had to travel slow

On foot long distances with no place to go

Hungry, tired fearful and train tracks destroyed

We had lost everything, everything dear
to us and annoyed

Who can comprehend having to search
for a shed 

To find some rest for one night
to put down your head

Who can comprehend when you never
had to beg for a piece of bread

We were promised a better life
and what did we get?

A wall was built instead

To keep people out or in?

What a sin!!!!!!
