"Self Pity" - DH Lawrence

David Herbert Richards Lawrence, famously known by his short name DH Lawrence, was a renowned English novelist, poet, playwright etc. Probably the first time I heard his poem 'Self Pity', was through the movie 'GI Jane', then on Denzel Washington's 'Great Debaters'. Needless to say, the first time itself I liked it.


"I never saw a wild thing
Sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
Without ever having felt sorry for itself."
