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.

I'm only 15 and in a few months I will be 16. This poem makes me appriciate
that I am still alive. The older that I get the more I notice the world
around me. Like a robin perched on a branch or a spider web glistening
after a light shower. Since I am still here I respect most of what is
around me but not all the time. Live, Love, Laugh, and Praise the Lord.

Your poem is very touching and it is my favorite of them all on this "top
40" list. The poet Langston has a very awesome talent for writing and i
enjoy reading them every day.

This poem is great and is written with so much feeling! Just hereing the
two words together "still here" is really overr looked by a lot of people.
We should appreciate that we are still here to experience the wonderful
meaning of life and your purpose on this earth.
