"But I am learning, day by day I am moving from you,
I am teaching myself not to leave even a drop of my tear / urine / salama / saliva / blood with you ...
I am teaching myself to take longer journeys.
To go as far as I can, as far as I can - no matter how hurt and broken I am.
I am learning to hide my daughters from you.
I am learning not to believe in your language,
I am forgetting it,
I am forgetting your words and letters you write to make up our story
throughout the stacks of newspapers .
I have left your virulent spiral.
And together with my daughters I am building our own.
I stole our sons from you,
I will show them beauty of our islands, suns, moons and the skies,
they will love the taste of our fruits, wine and bread,
they will be blessed to construct the circles of our spiral and help us protect it from you.
In our name, by the end of the day, they will kill you!"
