I do believe, with all my heart, In the natural Goodness of Man. I do believe, with all my heart, That God gave man the blessing and the curse.
Alexander Kimel died Jan. Do I want to remember? The peaceful ghetto, before the raid: Children shaking like leaves in the wind. Mothers searching for a piece of bread. Shadows, on swollen legs, moving with fear.
Do I want to remember, the creation of hell? The shouts of the Raiders, enjoying the hunt. Cries of the wounded, begging for life. Faces of mothers carved with pain.
Hiding Children, dripping with fear. Do I want to remember, my fearful return? Families vanished in the midst of the day. The mass grave steaming with vapor of blood. Mothers searching for children in vain. The pain of the ghetto, cuts like a knife.
Do I want to remember, the wailing of the night? The doors kicked ajar, ripped feathers floating the air. The night scented with snow-melting blood.
While the compassionate moon, is showing the way. For the faceless shadows, searching for kin. Do I want to remember this world upside down?
Where the departed are blessed with an instant death. While the living condemned to a short wretched life, And a long tortuous journey into unnamed place, Converting Living Souls, into ashes and gas.
I do believe, with all my heart, That God gave man the blessing and the curse. Man can select the curse of envy, hatred and prejudices, Or the blessing of love, harmony and beauty.
Despite the painful curses of the past, In the blessing of the Creator, I do believe. I do believe, with all my heart, That God created a beautiful world, The sun and the trees, the flowers and the bees.
And the best way to serve God, is To enjoy the fruits of His labor of love. Despite the painful memories from the past, In the joyful celebration of life, I do believe.
I do believe with all my heart, That God has created man in image of His own. And killing of man, is like killing of God. In the love and compassion of the Creator, I do believe.
I believe with all my heart, That the Messiah and the Kingdom of Heaven will come; When man will conquer his destructive urge, And learn how to live in harmony with nature and himself. When man will stop killing man, in the name of God, And nation will not lift weapons against nation.
When it will be, I do not know, but Despite all the signs to the contrary. In the dawn of a Better World, I do believe.
