Noam Watt // HEROES

My Saba;

My grandfather.

Born in Europe, but only given life

After he left.

He found his true place

In the holy land,

But before that,

 

Oh how valiantly he fought

For not just his freedom,

But mine.

 

To escape the hate

To protect my fate

In the land of Russia,

He fought for us all.

 

His boldness and bravery

Fighting for not just for his life,

But for all Jews.

 

His confidence and courage

Knowing the future

Would right the wrongs of society.

 

His intensity, integrity, and intelligence,

To escape what was wrong

To fight for what was right.

 

My Saba.

Without him,

I would not be here today.

 

My Saba.

Without him,

We would not be here today.
