Poem: The Soul Unto Itself (1863)

The Soul Unto Itself
By: Emily Dickinson (1830- 1886 / USA)

The soul unto itself
Is an imperial friend - 
Or the most agonizing Spy -
An Enemy - could send -

  Secure against its own -          
No treason it can fear -
Itself - its Sovereign - of itself
The Soul should stand in Awe -
