Alive?

They're all gone now
all dead
mother... father
my little sister
and even uncle Fred
killed at Treblinka
father shot
mother… uncle
gassed to death
oh how sister fought
those German sadists
who raped her
kicked… beaten
her last breath
begged for her mother
of all our family
I alone
lived… survived
their death, my guilt
why me… alive?
