Resolve ~ Charlotte Perkins Gilman

To keep my health!
  To do my work!
  To live!
  To see to it I grow and gain and give!
  Never to look behind me for an hour!
  To wait in weakness, and to walk in power;
  But always fronting onward to the light,
  Always and always facing towards the right.
  Robbed, starved, defeated, fallen, wide astray—
  On, with what strength I have!
  Back to the way!

Charlotte Perkins Gilman
