my opinion

i am surprised to read this poem. as the poet in this poem is rasing the
problems that are existing even today. even today we all are the silent
bearer as then he was.we all are just waiting for some miracle to happen to
change all these problems, that's why in the last two lines of the
poem,"ALL THE MEANENSS & AGONY WITOUT END, I SITTING, LOOK UPON, SEE, HEAR
& I AM SILENT" actually WALT WHITMAN is reflecting our situation.

I feel this poem shows the views of the kids in poverty all over the world.
They cant help the fact that they live that way.

"i sitting look out upon, see hear, and am silent". i hope that these lines
are satirically blamming the people who are all simply sitting and giving
comments about the happenings in our world. And also these line are the
mirror of the uncivilized people's mind.

I think "I Sit and Look out" shows the poet's meditation on the
indifference of the world, sometimes it's hard to change the reality, it's
even harder to rely on other individuals, since they just sit beside the
window and look ouside.
Isn't this an universal problem?
The poem also display the author's writing style: Transcendentalism and
Individualism.
