“Who are you God, and who am I?” – St Francis of Assisi
I would like to share a poem written by a fifth grade girl that I know well and who brings joy and wonderment to my life. She requested that I use her nickname, Shadow.
Who Am I?
” I was brought into this world wondering why I’m here.
I was brought into this world wondering who I was.
‘Shadow, Shadow, Shadow,’ someone called.
They were my parents.
I reacted and slowly crawled towards them.
And to this day I’m still wondering,
Who am I?
Why am I here?” -by Shadow, fifth grade
For further inquiry:
Week One. Reflect on this poem written by a fifth grader. Are these questions you ask yourself? If not, what questions occupy your mind?
Week Two. Write your own poem entitled: Who Am I?
