Here’s the original text for the poem:

die a little

with every disappointment

or find what never dies

and has no preferences


try a little

and keep illusion going

or see the futility of effort

and stop pushing on nothing


be happy a little

now and then when circumstance allows

or rest in the source of happiness

now, then and always


believe a little

that you are someone

or notice there is no separate one

not any limit to being


love a little

with half a heart

or let love have it all

filling the heart to overflowing

As usual, the emphases and the repetitions in the poem reading are my literary liberties.
Also, Nirmala’s poems in this book do not have any titles so the titles are my additions.
