I Am
The person who never knew what my birthplace looks like.
The person who just knew the name of the birthplace.
12 years as Thailands refugee.
A computer with the password.
A roof that is protecting my loved ones when its raining.
An artist who likes drawing the moon and the sunset.
A hut beside the rice paddy field.
Lightning when it is cloudy.
The person who wants to be a stream rather than the ocean.
The person who is building a time machine to travel through to my future and travel
back to my childhood.
The person who believes in confidence can reach souls.
The person who puts my faith on hard work.
A turtle for my parents.
Winter but summer.
A backpack full of books inside.
A tree with a shadow that cools others when its sunny.
The person who wants to be a hand for my people and others.
The person who always think about life in Thailands refugee camp.
The person who always wonders what my birthplace look like.
