Song of Myself

- Walt Whitman
(Excerpt from "Song of Myself")

"Gently, but with undeniable strength
divesting myself of the holds that would hold me
I inhale great draughts of space

The North and the South are mine
And the East and the West are mine
I am larger, better than I thought
I did not know I held so much goodness

All seems beautiful to me

Henceforth, I ask not for good fortune
I am my own good fortune."
