A Note to Sophie

Sophie Scholl

 

The sun is shining today,

It shines every day for me.

For my world is not of yours,

Admiring you, I stay.

 

Eyes and faith laid inside you,

To see stolen justice.

The slaughter was too much for men,

To silently obey.

 

A short life cut in seconds,

The blade dropping fast.

You offered yourself, without thought,

A sacrifice retold.

 

No greater love has any man,

To give up everything.

The last breadth, wisdom full,

For friends and others unknown.

 

I know no Sophie,

Before my time, a woman full of God.

Who showed this way to follow Him,

All it cost was love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Memory of Sophie Scholl. Christian Martyr and Revolutionary.
