A Question

Poem By Robert Frost

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.

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 voice…..what it is? …look me in the stars! The rest part is left for others to examine …A great poem by the great poet Robert Frost
A painful answer for all of natures beautiful sights.
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?
