It is amazing how two small lines can express so many feelings that we
encounter throughout our lives. in many of Thoreau's poems he talks about
honesty towards ourselves and others. after reading the other comments, i
realized how many people take words and thoughts the wrong way, and dont
truly understand life. They all miss his entire point which is dont fall
into the effects of society but be your own person and be true to that
person. Ignorant people say a lot to the world.

WOW this dude is so damn smart he just solved the meaning of living a poem
or why you should never hear another, write another, record another, read
another, and why another should never exist

Thoreau wrote in his book Walden that the key to existence is, "Simplicity,
simplicity, simplicity." That sentiment is expressed in the structure of
this two-line poem. If it were filled with symbolic extended metaphors and
filled pages and pages of text, it would not reflect Thoreau's vision of
the world. Also, his text Walden also explains that he went to the woods
to experience life in its basest form and discover what it truly meant to
live. That is the message of the poem, too, to live rather than write
about the possibility of living.
