Self-Pity

Wednesday, October 31, 2007
Came across this poem by D.H. Lawrence in the movie G.I Jane (happened to be surfing channels yesterday nite and watched a bit of the movie again... :-)... I know I should have been doing better things....).... here's the poem...
I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself
The poem beautifully describes self pity....

MY river runs to thee:
Blue sea, wilt welcome me?

My river waits reply.
Oh sea, look graciously!

I ’ll fetch thee brooks 5
From spotted nooks,—

Say, sea,
Take me!


And this would be the opposite of that perspective :-D from Emily Dickinson.
