What if I say I shall not wait!

What if I say I shall not wait!
What if I burst the fleshly Gate
And pass escaped to thee!

What if I file this Mortal off
See where it hurt me That’s enough
And wade in Liberty!

They cannot take me any more!
Dungeons can call and Guns implore
Unmeaning now to me

As laughter was an hour ago
Or Laces or a Travelling Show
Or who died yesterday!

Poem What if I say I shall not wait! - Emily Dickinson
