Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night - Poem by Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    When the one person who reads the poem fails to realize that it's written in iambic pentameter and is reading it completely wrong... (Report) Reply

    I love this poem, as it is an allegory telling us to keep holding on to life, as it is a gift from God. At our end we know dark is right, or that we will die sooner or later, but as life is important, we should try to keep it. Willpower, when aided by the Lord God, is one of the strongest things on our Earth, helping many people pull through the illnesses and injuries that are inevitable on earth. (Report) Reply
