Feeling down, sometimes poetry helps

I had a rough night at the hospital last night and I desperately need some sleep. Right now I'm feeling rather defeated.
This poem by Emily Dickinson describes my sentiments exactly.....

I took my power in my hand
And went against the world;
'T was not so much as David had,
But I was twice as bold.

I aimed my pebble, but myslef
Was all the one that fell.
Was it Goliath was too large,
Or only I too small?

~ Emily Dickinson, excerpt from Life.
