Walt Whitman - O Living Always—Always Dying.

O LIVING always—always dying! 
O the burials of me, past and present! 
O me, while I stride ahead, material, visible, imperious as ever! 
O me, what I was for years, now dead, (I lament not—I am content;) 
O to disengage myself from those corpses of me, which I turn and look at, where I cast
    them!
To pass on, (O living! always living!) and leave the corpses behind!
