I was inspired to read the epic poem after reading “Paper Towns” by John Green.
I do not have much experience with poetry to be honest. I thoroughly enjoy lyrics to songs, and poetry has a rhythmic flowing message so I should, therefore, enjoy poetry yes? Well, I gave this poem a shot and I found myself both bored and intrigued.
It was kind of a monologue about life. And there were a lot of really great lines (or stanzas, whatever they’re called). I liked the overall idea of the poem, and I think that Mr. Whitman and I would have gotten along in another life. I also enjoyed the idea of interconnectedness, and oneness… I think this poem holds a lot of value to life. It’s a very interesting concept.
