Those who meet the troubles of life head on are the true soldiers.

Literature

I believe that life is where people just want to be famous AT TIMES mind
you. But then again, we even dont know our true selves. To be able to cope
with our own sorrows without being dependant on someone else is what i
would call a true human being. life has its ups and downs. humans are not
angels or perfect beings andlet alone God. yet when we fall, when we're
just about to go astray and slip; we get up again and again; because we
dont want to give up. There are people around us who help us up back on to
our feet. Angels are what everyone calls perfect beings. I agree since they
are pure and white just like flakes of snow but still snow is cold.... we
dont have to fight for our country as a brave human and be famous worldwide
but just so long as-in my heart I believe- just so long as we can trust
ourselves, be famous to ourselves, We can live life and learn to trust the
world once more....
" Nothing's perfect, the world's not perfect. But it's there for us, trying
the best it can; and this is what makes it so beautiful..."

I think this is about how although it is brave to fight physically, it is
braver to fight within your heart (with the horses of sadness). Compared to
soldiers, no country sees the broken-hearted and those unscathed from love.
And even when love fails us, we find a way to trust love again.

emily dickenson was an over compulsive, agoraphobic, emotionally distant
recluse and heralded her lifestyle of unitentionally forcing herself to be
backed up into a corner through her poetry. this poem is about her crave to
live a normal life but by being emotionally abused by her own paranoia she
remained in solitary silence

i think its about standing up for your country and you should say your
thoughts out loud

This poem talks about how a person who is truly brave will not fight aloud
to gain recognition but rather, fight inwardly with his own sorrows to
obtain esteem from no one but himself. There will always be losses, but the
true bravery lies in coping with one's own misery to better understand
oneself. And even as the angels are marching with "even feet" they are
still coated in uniforms of snow (signifying something pure because it is
white, but nevertheless utterly cold). The bottom line is that to fight
outwardly is brave, but to challenge one's own perceptions of what is right
or wrong is much more brave, because with one's own ideology on the line
there is room for so much more criticism--self-criticism.

I think this poem is about how u should be silent instead of saying
something aloud.

To me this poem was about challenging the world's ideas with new ones,
better ones. But no one notices, no one cares for them.
