Trapped in the school yard surrounded by
spies. She patiently awaited the end of
her sentence here. Like a prisoner
she knew these walls could not keep
her much longer because joy had
found her. She devoted her life
to others and served herself with
the same love devoted to strangers.
She had made a heaven of her hell.
Why was she so happy even here
within the gates? Life is a
celebration she shared with tears
in her eyes.
