This poem has been written by Dr. Lajiman Janoory.3. Physical analysis : It has been written in three paragraphs which is contains of 2sets of quatrain and a set of quintet.4. Topic : Life5. Theme of the poem : A cycle of life.3
  • 6. Summary :This poem is telling about a cycle of life which is facing by all the human in the world.All the human will be having their obstacles or problems, happiness, sadness as theirexperiences in their lives. The point is, all of the human have their own experiences buttowards the end, they will be going and arriving to the same destination, that is thedead.The first stanza is telling about the nature of a human life which is the feeling andemotions of human are there in living in the world. It is normal for human to feel thehappiness for a short period of time but it is longer for the human to feel the sadness orthe obstacles in lives. It also a normal thing when we are having fun, we will feel that ourlives are too short but when we have any problems, we will feel that the lives are toolong to go through.The second stanza is describing that all those problems, obstacles, emotions, feelingsare happening in different ways. Some of them are good and nice to be memorized butsome of them are a bit tragic , sad or suffer to be remembered and go through into it.And, all those things are apprehension which is nobody knows what will be happened inthe future.The last stanza is the climax of the poem which is telling the conclusion of the part of ahuman. We as the human are only a part of the lives, playing a role as a puppet, whoare only playing our role and characters ( good or bad people ) in this short period oflives. Towards the end, we will be at the same and last phase of lives that is the dead.7. RHYME – This poem is not using the rhyme scheme which is a pattern of rhyme( usually end rhyme, but not always ). But, it uses some Onomatopoeia which is wordsthat imitate the sound they are naming or sounds that imitate another sound such as thesound of /s/.For example :4
  • It’s a sand of uncertaintiesOf Happiness, Sadness … ApprehensionIt’s the eternal cycle of FateSometimes motherly, sometimes a tyranny8. VERSE – It is a free verse poem which is does not have rhyme, very conversationalwhich sounds like someone is talking with you and it is a more modern type of poetry.9. IMAGERY – The writer uses some imagery elements to intensifies the impact of thepoet’s words as he shows to us. For example : Life is but a passing glimpse ofexistence is showing that our lives are too short. And another example is the use ofword ‘puppets’ in the line of And we the insignificant puppets is telling to us that weare the characters or person who are having the lives with our own experiences in thisworld.10. Personal Reflections :I selected this poem because it is related closely to my own life because all of usare having the same cycle of life. The only different is the way how do we face and dealwith our memories, obstacles, moments in our lives. My favourite lines are in the firststanza which is telling the true and real scenario of a human life. For example, we ashuman will automatically feel that it is too short of time to feel the happiness rather thanfacing the sadness. That is the reality of human lives. All of us will feel the same feeling.The most attractive lines to me are in the third stanza, line 3 to 5, which is tellingthat we are only functioning as the players of the characters and scripts ( flow of lives )in the world. All of those things are destined by our God and we should be morethankful to Him for giving us chances to live in the world in certain period of time given.So, the moral of the poem is, we should try and do the best and good things beforeleading to the dead. And. to me, life is like a drama too as we have the characters of thestory, plots, settings, conflicts, climax and the ending. Each of the elements have theirown impacts to bring the audience or the other people to think of the reality of lives.5
