Poem Commentary

draw from within... and rise 

Rise

I hang from life’s thin strands now

at end’s dark abyss

and weave more onto this frail web

for living I shall miss.


entice the intrusion,

relinquish all thought,

succumb to the incidence

invoking has wrought.


awake from life’s coma

in rapture by yield,

and rise from the casket

self-cast and self-sealed.

Awesome... so many interpretations to this poem... my take is the way we seal ourselves up trying to escape pressures of life.

I like it, I like it. There is always life and each of us cannot live without it.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
