Sometimes, life is
as quietly beautiful as a poem, as desolate as a vine
as intense as a soaring eagle
as lonely as a dust-covered stele
Poem by Chen, Yi-Wen
English version translated by Audrey Tang, the first transgender and the first non-binary official minister without portfolio of Taiwan's Executive Yuan. She is now serving as Digital Minister in charge of the Ministry of Digital Affairs (MODA) of the Republic of China (Taiwan).
