OFT’s passionate board members are always brainstorming ways and finding opportunities to “outreach for Taiwan” in any way possible.
The other day while passing through Union Square, we passed a man with a typewriter who said he can write a poem about anything.
We went up to him, and asked “Have you heard about Taiwan before?” We gave him a brief overview about Taiwan’s history and current situation. Within a few minutes, he wrote a poem about Taiwan…
An island in a world of continents
the adopted orphan
the one that has a face
that is no face
Misfits are often the ones that teach,
that see outside the box they are stuffed into.
There is a beauty to being estranged,
and an anxiety to be so surrounded
by the big red hand.
Two essential ingredients
to cooking up some dishes
to feed a new hunger
To be free
A radiant face for all to see
What do you think about it? Write a poem about Taiwan and share with us!
