i agree w/ both. but the poem could be referring to more than just death,
it could be any kind of struggle within life itself. maybe it's describing
kind of faliure in general, and how we hate accepting it even if it would
be easier to and just move on. i guess that works for death too.

I respectfully disagree with this comment.
I think what she means in this poem is that dying people cling all they can
to life and that's why, when they're dead they "part company" with Hope:
it's Hell for them because they were so bent on life. She then says that
even though we might say that God is beautiful and how good it would be to
meet Him, we shun that meeting (death) like an adversity.

Falling is a lot easier and quicker than trying to pull yourself up again.
Most people that are in a depressed state would rather keep falling than
try to get back on top and pull themselves up. Everyone has problems and
obstacles, and this poem hits home to me, and I'm sure to everybody else.
