Abyss — Loss of Faith

When I was transported
I hoped God would help us
I waited
I endured

As each day went by
My faith dripped away
I started losing hope
Every day was excruciating

If God existed, we thought
Why wasn’t he rescuing us?
Did we displease him?
We prayed and prayed

No anwer.
I came to a conclusion
If God was real,
Would Auschwitz, and Buna, still run?

I felt an abyss inside me
Yet, I felt stronger than before
I felt power, but that day was when
Hitler took my faith forever
