Born Again


He may be
Born again
I guess

He never
Had a father
All his life

So he may
Look forward
To being born
Again and having
A father in his next
Life

    An interesting poem. I'm wondering if the meaning is meant as to be born again as in a religious sense a and beingborn anew in Christ or if it's meant in the way of that ever elusive quest of wondering if there is such a thing as reincarnation and an afterlife. I llove this piece for the way it is left open to the reader's interpretation. (Report) Reply

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
