The Inevitable (Poem by Emily Dickinson)

Emily Dickinson

The Inevitable
By Emily Dickinson


While I was fearing it, it came,
    But came with less of fear,
Because that fearing it so long
    Had almost made it dear.
There is a fitting a dismay,
    A fitting a despair.
'Tis harder knowing it is due,
    Than knowing it is here.
The trying on the utmost,
Is terribler than wearing it
    A whole existence through.
