A Question

Rating: 3.6
A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.

A very pertinent question on how much eternity can be counted as a balance sheet of life.

The narrator brings focus upon pessimism that innately abides in most humans who have been hurt or wronged by the myriad ways people have developed to deceive or work against one another. So what? Life is still worth living.

A great thought provoking poem. In Vedic philosophy it is said that Supreme Being created the Universe for its own enjoyment- Ananda. Looking at our pain and suffering I wonder if It asks that question?

Hmmm... I wonder if Frost himself could identify the “me” in this poem. What it brings to mind for me is the description of the incarnation (and what followed) of St Paul in Philippians 2: 5-11. -GK
