I Know My Soul

Written by: Claude McKay | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 I plucked my soul out of its secret place, 
And held it to the mirror of my eye, 
To see it like a star against the sky, 
A twitching body quivering in space, 
A spark of passion shining on my face.
And I explored it to determine why This awful key to my infinity Conspires to rob me of sweet joy and grace.
And if the sign may not be fully read, If I can comprehend but not control, I need not gloom my days with futile dread, Because I see a part and not the whole.
Contemplating the strange, I'm comforted By this narcotic thought: I know my soul.
