i think this poem is really good because it shows that life is full of
unwanted things and unfortunate occasions and even though we go through all
these things, we're "still here"

I loved the poem and i think the power of mind in Langston cant stop me
think of ever existential of a person, being born, live, and die is the
mark of a persons existence and no matter what that will never diminish
whether subjected to pain, joys, of this world or off down into graves one
remains unique and thatr is an undiniable fact. Each person marks a history
as long as one comes and leaves the face of the Earth. Yap Hughes is simply
a smart Poet i lhave come to enjoy reading!-Augustine

In my opinion i think the poem is saying that he is tired or every
suffering there is. He is expressing that there are so many problems in

The first line of the poem should read "scarred and battered." At least,
that's how it's put on Mykee Fowlin's website. Makes sense. Just thought
you'd want to know.
