TODAY IS SUNDAY
Today is Sunday. Today, for the first time, they took me out into the sun and for the first time in my life I looked at the sky amazed that it was so far and so blue and so wide. I stood without moving and then respectfully sat on the black earth, pressed my back against the wall. Now, not even a thought of dying, not a thought of freedom, of my wife. The earth, the sun and me ... I am happy.
