WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?

Tetum-English Translated poem ‘Ba o, Ha’u Ne’e Se?’

Thou asked me

‘Who do you say I am?’

I fell silent. I looked around.

I heard people called Thou with great names.

Peter also called Thou with a great name. Then Thou smiled.

Yet Thou still looked at me, then asked me, though;

‘Who do you say I am?’

I blankly looked at Thou, and then replied;

‘I do not know yet. Because until now, I continue seeking to know about who Thou are.’
