Christopher P. Kriesen's Stella Polaris
There is a better way.
"Henceforth I ask not good fortune, I myself am good fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
You road I enter upon and look around, I believe you are not all that is here,
I believe that much unseen is also here.
Gently, but with undeniable will,
divesting myself of the holds that would hold me,
I inhale great draughts of space.
Here is the test of wisdom,
Here is realization,
Here is a man tallied.
I am larger, better than I thought,
I did not know I held so much goodness,
All seems beautiful to me."
Walt Whitman 1856
