Boundaries

Between Coffees Blog has a page about boundaries
Showing how foreign domestic helpers
Create space for themselves
By setting up boundaries in public space
Below is my comment
Transformed into a poem:
—————————–

We all need a place 
That we can call our own
We all know this space 
Where we can feel at home

Connecting to our friends
Sharing food and drink
Breathing out the tensions
Finding room for grief


Sleeping, 

Crying,
Laughing,
Sighing.

Without boundaries 
For ourselves
Our souls 

Slowly 
fade
and 
die.
