    Doing is Being
    by Ray Bradbury

    Doing is being.
    To have done’s not enough.
    To stuff yourself with doing — that’s the game.
    To name yourself each hour by what’s done,
    To tabulate your time at sunset’s gun
    And find yourself in acts
    You could not know before the facts
    You wooed from secret self, which much needs wooing,
    So doing brings it out,
    Kills doubt by simply jumping, rushing, running
    Forth to be
    The now-discovered me.
    To not do is to die,
    Or lie about and lie about the things
    You just might do some day.
    Away with that!
    Tomorrow empty stays
    If no man plays it into being
    With his motioned way of seeing
    Let your body lead your mind —
    Blood the guide dog to the blind;
    So then practice and rehearse
    To find heart-soul’s universe,
    Knowing that by moving/seeing
    Proves for all time: Doing’s being!
