Today, April 9th, marks the 75th anniversary of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s execution by the Nazis…
Who Am I?
Am I really what others tell me?
Or am I only what I myself know of me?
Troubled, homesick, ill, like a bird in a cage,
gasping for breath, as though one strangled me,
hungering for colors, for flowers, for songs of birds,
thristing for kind words, for human company,
