Who am I? (Bonhoeffer)

Who am I? This or the other?
Am I one person today, and tomorrow another?
Am I both at once? A hypocrite before others,
and before myself a contemptibly woebegone weaking?...
Who am I? They mock me, these lonely questions of mine.
Whoever I am, thou knowest, O God, I am thine.

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters from Prison
