Soul Dance

This is what I believe:

That I am I.

That my soul is a dark forest.

That my known self

will never be more than

a little clearing in the forest.

That gods, strange gods,

come forth from the forest

into the clearing of my known self,

and then go back.

 

That I must have the courage

to let them come and go.

That I will never let mankind put

anything over me, but that I will try

always to recognize and submit

to the gods in me and the gods in

other men and women.

There is my creed.

~DH Lawrence
