The end and the beginning of wars of existence
When the darkness reigns just to evanescence
I have slain my nocturnal brethren

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dusk is a depiction of similar emotions went through during the time of dusk and dawn. There is only a moment when we get to analyze what we are doing, why we are doing it and if we are supposed to do it or not. The transition from both pathetic life of day to life of night and vice-versa try to persuade a person into giving them up, yet they continue to fight the wars. The question I have asked in the poem is why?

When a person prays from the soul, God himself provides the answers to them. Everyone lives for responsibilities. If someone does not feel them then they are not alive. A life of torment does not mean that we stop living it. We have to find strength from our own self. ‘To live and to burn’ illustrates the eternity of poet’s pain.

This verse is an abnormal mix of suffering and hope. While I support the idea of happiness and sorrow being two faces of a coin, I say that some people see the sorrow side far more frequently to even remember the existence of happiness. ‘There is no reason to live life’- God did not send us with our purposes imprinted on ourselves. We have to find a reason to live, and the life worth living is the one lived for others.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
