This is my own interpretation of the poem :
The longer life is, the more offences will be on your way;
The more offence, the bigger the pain will be ;
When pain is bigger, then defence becomes shorter and slighter;
The slighter defence is , then the less gain they will be ,
This long years of life lost helps to do very good ;
Therefore, here comes death and I’m ready to die.
When life is shorter, the less total determination i find,
The less count I’m aware of, The sooner the decision is made ;
But when the count is finally made, the more cheerful the mind will be;
The cheerful mind helps to escape from our thoughts.
Short life is truthfully very good;
Therefore, death let me die;
Come gentle death, with a cooler sorrow ;
The coolest of care gives a more meaning to life,
The flood of life is the more vivid type of sustenance .
The happy fare leads to the very end ;
I Wish for the end to come by, therefore death come and let me die.
This poem reminds me of this time in our lives , when we are given up and everything is against us.Then our only solution is death and we really want to be in peace . It’s also reminds me of growing up and aging where we go through pain and change in our body. We wished to have a short lives where we don’t have to go through the process of aging sometimes.Reading this I was painting a picture of someone sick , and praying that death should come and let him die.
