Be Yourself

"To be nobody but yourself- in a world which is doing its best, day and night, to make you like everybody else- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting."

-e.e. cummings

I love e.e.cummings - can I share?

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers.
Don't cry
- the best gesture of my brain
is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

- e.e. cummings
