[บทกวี] A Poem for December 26th, 2022 [Who Am I?]

This poem is dedicated to

Who are you?

This was a homework assignment I gave to a student.

No, not one of the deepest questions known to people, but just a simple grammar assignment:

to construct one question.

The student produced three words:

Who are you?

This was my response:

“Who are you?” is actually not a simple, easy question at all. You have found one of the most important questions we all know.

We ask this question, but convert it to:

“Who am I?”

And then, this question is directly connected to:

“What is the meaning of life?”

“Who am I?” is a question we ask ourselves in the deepest and darkest times. The answers to it come in bits and pieces when we are happy. It is those challenging times where prove our mettle, our worth, and the value of our deeds. People find what they are made of when a storm swirls around us,

where,

we

seek

a way out.

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.”

Sun Tzu
