The poem The Lesson is just that, it is a lesson. We are constantly and forever dying, both the cycle of lows and hardships as well as the literal and inevitable progression of life towards its end. But death is as much a part of life as life is, and we cannot be paralyzed by fear of death so that we do not live life. To appreciate what it means to live we must experience, learn from, and go on despite these struggles and mistakes. Thus we can only live and continue to live if we can accept the reality of death.
