"I shall not live in vain."
BackstoryIf I can stop one Heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one Life the Aching
Or cool one Pain
Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his Nest again
I shall not live in Vain.
-- Emily Dickinson (1830-1886),
Neither shall I live in vain. This is one of my favorite poems.
