in this poem, the old lady is speaking and she shows her respond to her
life. some people are sorrow, discontent, hopeless in their life, but she
is not. the false thing has in her life that she turns away from true life
and goes to bad things, no more good things she does in her life, no
principles, but follows devil way.

I somewhat disagree with what traviesa had to say about the poem. I think
the poem is about living life to the fullest. Instead of complaining about
the woes of life, live life out and it will reward you. Do not expect life
to come to you with bountiful gifts, you must seek them yourself.

This poem states that life can give you things but can also take them from
you. God gave her a bless to have children but as he gave her joy he took
them away from her. Maybe it was to make the readers understand that you
learm from your own experiences and that you canot let tragedy mark you for
the rest of your life no matter how deep you been stab. (hope it helps)

Help! I'm working on a project involving this poem and I'm finding it
difficult to analyze - should it be taken literally or is it a running
metephor for life? Anyone else have any ideas?
