let me be something

"let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. 
Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. 
Let me be hungry…have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. 
Let me be sincere— be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. 
Let me be honorable and let me sin. 
Only let me be something every blessed minute. 
And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.”
