The poem provides a small sense of ambiguity in the italic words. Almost
like he's saying, even though he backed out, the situation was tense, and
the feats required either courage or stupidity.
This poem really can communicate with alot of people out there, considering
the fact that suicide and depression are becoming more common.

"I could've died for love--But for livin' I was bornThough you may hear me
holler,And you may see me cry--I'll be dogged, sweet baby,If you gonna see
me die"
Ahh.. lost love, love betrayed, love ignored, the pain of love and yet,
finally, the triumph of the singular: No way in hell will I die because you
don't or won't love me. Free at last.
