Aleutian Sparrow Free Verse

Torn from her home for no action of her own.
Vera is American, her father's line among some of the first.
She has lost what is most precious to her,
Her father by death and her mother by choice
Living with either privacy or warmth
They all ate food fit for animals, not humans.
However, there are friendships made and love found.
There are those who care and stick it out.
Despite the fact that Germans were treated better,
Vera makes the best of the situation she's in.
