I Sit Content

Books 001

I exist as I am, that is enough,

If no other in the world be aware I sit content,

And if each and all be aware I sit content.


One world is aware, and by far the largest to me, and that is myself,

And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million                   years,

I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait …


Have you outstript the rest?  Are you the President?

It is a trifle …  they will more than arrive there every one, and still pass on.

                 — Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
