Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

I Took My Power In My Hand

540

I took my Power in my Hand—
And went against the World—
'Twas not so much as David—had—
But I—was twice as bold—

I aimed by Pebble—but Myself
Was all the one that fell—
Was it Goliath—was too large—
Or was myself—too small?
