Last year the 1st of may I met them both in Brussels and was touched by the immensity of their grieve- In the frame of what is happening this moment in the Middle East, this poem keeps (shamefully enough) its actuality!

Two faces of women
two faces of mothers
wearing masks of grief
wearing veils of pain
wearing scars of loss
coming from different worlds
bearing the burden of
different conflicts
one from Palestine
one from the USA
united in their strenght
united in their figth
united in their hopes
for a more peaceful world
I hold their hands and
inside weep with them
For I'm a woman
I'm a mother
they're my sisters

For Fadwa Barghouti & Nadia McCaffrey
but also for all the Cindy Sheehan's- and the thousands without a name!

I did not choose poetry-poetry chose me!
