TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. NOT FOR A FEW MONTHS OR YEARS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Think not that that which is growing inside you
Last Line: Shall not satisfy it.
Subject(s): Love; Poetry & Poets


THINK not that that which is growing inside you as you battle with these
words is for a few months or years,
Or that it will find its rest and satisfaction in the things for which the
world is so busy striving.
Food ease lust knowledge fame—'twill pasture up as nonchalantly as a
dog, and look in your face for more.
They shall not satisfy it. The list of all the things that can be named
shall not satisfy it.
