Joy

O Me! O Life!        
by 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 foolish;  
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 around me;         
Of the empty and useless years of the rest—with the rest me intertwined;  
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?  
  
                                                        Answer.

That you are here—that life exists, and identity;  
That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.

Because you cannot stop this train.

O me! O my! O yellow nails!
A recurring question drills my mind:
should I change teh color to green
or leave it as it is, yellow?
My eyes crave for color, but which one? I struggle.
As a result of all of this
I put a lipstick on my sensious lips.
What color is it? That's for you to guess. smile
