O Me! O Life!—Walt Whitman
O ME! O life! of the questions of these recurring,
Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill'd with the
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I,
and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the
struggle ever renew'd,
Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see
Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me
The question, O me! so sad, recurring-What good amid these, O me,
That you are here-that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.
"You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say."--F. Scott Fitzgerald
I want to do whatever I can to help you succeed in English. To that end, I'm available before school, after school, and during 2nd lunch for tutoring. Just let me know in advance when you'd like to come by.
