Louisa May Alcott

(29 November 1832 – 6 March 1888 / Pennsylvania / United States)

My Kingdom

A little kingdom I possess
where thoughts and feelings dwell,
And very hard I find the task
of governing it well;
For passion tempts and troubles me,
A wayward will misleads,
And selfishness its shadow casts
On all my words and deeds.
