sisters - separated by endless loops of razor wire that sparkle in the sun
me - free to come and go, to make the countless small decisions that determine my life
you - confined by endless rules and the barked commands of crackley loud speakers,
indecipherable to me, but understood by you, the result of long practice and necessity.
and yet, we are the same.
it could have been me on your side of the wire if causes and conditions had been different.
it could have been you on this side.
and so we breathe slowly, in and out
sense our bodies sitting here, alive in this very moment
and learn to be free and to know that we are one.
