This morning, I woke up in a melancholy mood. I don’t know why. Perhaps, I was troubled by a child’s innocent question last evening. He asked me out of the blue, “Uncle Lum, who are you…I mean who are we?”

Indeed, that seems to be an innocent question but it created deep thoughts – both religious and secular. Well, I managed to answer that question from a child’s point of view, but it is enough to cause ripples in my mind….. Indeed, who are we?

Well, I will let you answer this question the way you feel comfortable. Answer it truthfully. I hope you will try to find out who we are if you are not satisfied with your answer.

This brought me back to a poem which I wrote many years ago. Today, I have written a slightly different one in my unique  format.  Hope it would speak to each one of us :



Live performers,

On world stage;

Different roles we portray,

As daily events slowly unfold,

Our stories on Life’s wide web!

When will the curtain fall?

How is our performance?

Faithfully we act,

Without knowing,
