And this, by Dag Hammarskjold:



and lonely,

So tired

the heart aches.

Meltwater trickles down the rocks,

the fingers are numb,

the knees tremble.

It is now,

Now, that you must not give in.


On the path of the others

are resting places,

places in the sun

where they can meet.

But this

is your path,

and it is now,

now, that you must not fail.



if you can,


but do not complain.

The way chose you--

and you must be thankful.
