O this life...
A river of pain
Breathing beings
Can have no brink...

Wow! Brilliant poem. Any interpretation depends on how that last line is taken. It can be the conclusion of what precedes it, or it can be the breaking point. It may be the realization that after knowledge comes self-awareness, and that sinking feeling.
