Whitman's Confession

A Riddle Song ,displays Whitman's confession to his greater -self .His
vision catches the the glimpse of the vastly conscious identity of this
world and universe .
The riddle is as old as life .The solution has ever been sought .The
probable answer in particular finds focus in Dickinson's poems .Tagore in
India , Blake in England ,Arobindio in India , and many poets and
philosophers of this world ,attempted , and few of them have succeeded .
My own view in the present riddle is ,-nothing but the eradication of our
primitive mind and , add discovery of the super mind in every one of us .

I absolutely love this poem! A first I had no idea what Whitman was
refering to but then it struck me. Could he possibly be talking of our
innate gift of free will? It is the very being that moves us but no on can
seem to put it into verse. It moves us just as it moved the martyrs
willingly in the past. It was freely given to us and we can pasionately use
it for the greatest achievment:heaven!

poet.
