I Took My Power In My Hand Poem by Emily Dickinson

I Took My Power In My Hand

Rating: 3.4


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?

It is annoying but if you read it as if that is where she is trying to make the reader pause for a second in order to reach a certain rhythm or speed of thought oh, then it is less annoying and more understandable.
