Life is a harsh reality that we struggle with everyday. In the poem “In a Station of the Metro” it explains how some people go about there lives everyday with a grim face and a sad aura. The author talks about how we can have ghostly faces that look so gloom. He then says afterwards that they are petals on a tree branch waiting to fall down and die. The author writes about the struggles in life we go through. He writes about the depression we face. I agree that the author has strong points but I disagree with the feeling he gives us. This sad aura is a weight on us that we must learn to lift up to be a stronger person. These grim faces are easy to change if we try to smile at all times. Every human being in the world is a person that matters no matter what is said or done. No matter who is told terrible things or had bad things done to them that stay in their life forever. I believe with all my heart that we should care about things at all times instead of caring only at the times when it leaves a convenient impression on us. It is better to be strong at all times than caring only when you want to. I see this poem as both good and bad becuase of the the feeling that it gives us. Even though it makes me sad it reminds me of how we need to learn how meaningful our lifes are when we struggle. I believe that everything happens for a reason that is important. It is so important that we can not truly understand it completely. We all have they weight of the world on our shoulders but if we try to lift this weight then we become strong enough to take on the world.
