Resignation
by Paul Laurence Dunbar
In the 1913 collection of his work, The Complete Poems of Paul Laurence Dunbar.


          RESIGNATION

Long had I grieved at what I deemed abuse;
   But now I am as grain within the mill.
If so be thou must crush me for thy use,
   Grind on, O potent God, and do thy will!
