The author was examining his feelings upon being told that he and his family were to be released from the prison called Yodok after 10 years, since he was a young boy. He felt joy, but also fear and moroseness. "Deep down, I had come to love them (the mountain ridges that surround the prison). They had been the bars of my prison and the framework of my life. They were my suffering and my being, bound indissolubly together."
