Wall and Chain: a story of breaking down walls

Berlin 1987

My father was a guard on the west side of the Berlin Wall
while another man guarded the east.

Eventually they wall came down but even after moving away my 
father carried a piece of it with him.

While I grew up it lingered over all of us,
a barrier between him and the rest of the world.

 us as a friend.

After that things were better for my father.
