As presented before the 2005 International Society of Poets' Summer Convention and Symposium to be held August 19-21, 2005, in Washington, DC.

For those whose voice, choice, life, and liberty were forever stolen and silenced; and for those who fight to end the Holocaust...

All Created equal, but are some more equal than others?
Will you fight to preserve my rights, or only for my brother's?
Life or death or liberty, should it not be my choice?
Yet you demand to choose for me and silence my small voice.
One heartbeat,
One breath,
One blink,
Then death.
All Created equal, yet some more equal than others,
When you would trade our very lives for the comfort of our mothers.
