my look on this poem is that she has doubts about her religion. She says,
"Faith Slips- and laughs, and rallies- Blushes if any see" i feel that she
is making fun of people that do have their doubts. she is saying that
people occasionally loose faith in their religion, and that it is normal,
but they blush if they feel like any one else knows. They blush because
they are ashamed and they dont really want anyone else to know that they
arent 100% sure of their religion. i beleive that it is hypocritical to say
that you have complete faith but have underlying doubts. but i guess that
thats why people blush and hide their true feelings because theyre afraid
of people like me that will think poorly of them. but at the same time i
wouldnt call you a hypocrite if you came out and said that you have doubts,
because that is normal, it is abnormal to completely devote yourself and be
completely comfortable in the idea of believing with all of your soul
something that you have never actually witnessed, something that you were
told to believe.
i also get hints of life outside of the earth, meaning other planets. she
says things like, "a species stands beyond", "to guess it puzzles scholars-
to gain in, men have borne". i dont know, but this is just one of the first
impressions that this poem had on me.

Think people....


Please stop to think. If you have read any of Emily Dickersons poems, you
would know she is a christian and does in fact believe in God. This poem
truly has nothing to do with whether there is or isn't an afterlife at all.
If you understand the time frame (what's going on in the world around her)
of this poem and actually listen to what she is saying. She is talking
about the industrial revolution... How the craziness of all that is going
on around the people of this time should not blind them from what is
important, GOD! It is a huge jab at the enlightenment period. Its a cry out
for people to see that the desire for such a change will dim the light that
is God. She wants people to not forget. Artist, and those who saw the
beauty in the world and in God, used this period to fight back and
developed the romantic era in writing. So there a little history lesson at
4:00 in the morning for ya.

I think Dickinson might have been saying that righteousness cannot be
obtained in this life. Men desire it, and to stupid things to achieve it;
religious leaders advertise that is can be found in a church; but there is
always some evil in this world that will taint your soul.

I think Emily was trying to show her faith through this poem. If taken in
the context of her other poems and what we know about how she was raised-
she wasn't trying to point out follies of faith but explain it. "I never
saw a moor" explains her belief that she held the belief of her "ticket/
chart" to heaven. It might be nice to believe that such a great mind
didn't believe in something that seems so childlike as God but she most
likely meant that she didn't think this world is the end. Faith can
sometimes be unexplainable and there are things even the "wise" can't
explain. Faith has its highs and lows but in the end you can't ignore its

I think that Emily Dickinson was expressing her feelings through faith,
science, and death. In her poem "This World Is not Conclusion" I believe
she was saying that death is not the end of this world. There is another
life after death which I do know there is because God say so. She was also
saying after we die there is another generation that comes after us, so
really this world never ends it keeps on going and going till the second
return of Jesus Christ our Savior who died on the cross for our sins. I
especially love this particular poem, for it gives me the true knowledge
about death. I learned that dying is not a big deal, because I get to live
a new life again with God. I think it is soooo coool!!
I am now writing a paper on this poem, so wish me luck.
God Bless all of ya'll who commented on this poem:-).
