A Question

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.

To live and brave the slings and arrows is really worth being born. I agree
Add a comment.Yeah, life is unreasonably complex. I reason with Frost.
What is the meaning behind A question by Robert Frost?
c'mon dude, really? You absolutely destroyed this poem.
I think I have an answer. For some, the answer is yes, it was too much to pay. Especially when we never chose to be born. For others, the answer is no. It wasn't too much because it was an adventure. They had a chance to make a difference, to change the world. It was all worth it in the end, and we were lucky to have step foot upon this earth. Perspective. This one is a beautiful poem.
