LIFE through WORDS
By Ms. Ahn
Words are power.
Power is action.
Action is beauty.
Beauty is art.
Art is creativity.
Creativity is LIFE.
Who Am I?
I am a connoisseur of language: whipping words, scrambling sounds, roasting rhetoric, and yes, sometimes mixing metaphors. Welcome to my feast.
I am rhyme and no reason, alliteration without consonants.
I am a Korean-American-Angeleno-Artisan-feminist-wannabe-pescatarian-dogophile who defies stereotypes and detests hackneyed labels. What are you?
I am a victim of the arts. How often have aesthetic masterpieces stolen my breath? I am ravaged by the power of aesthetics.
I am a student with eclectic lessons to learn and unjust rules to break. But I am also Ms. Ahn, your teacher, with lessons to teach and rules to enforce. Don't cross me.
I am in your corner, pushing you to the center of the ring, knowing you will be afraid, beaten, and crushed--but never defeated. You will curse me under your breath, entreating me to throw in the towel.
I am a believer. Despite my fastidious demands and reproachful countenance, I believe in you and your auspicious future. Don't shirk away from your Herculean opponents. You are a formidable fighter; believe in your prowess! Persevere, and you will prevail.
I am still hungry. Students, now it is your turn to contribute to the feast. What innovative dessert will you be concocting?
