A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars

    when I look up at the stars
    I often have only one question to ask
    Why the hell am I down here
    And for what blessed holy task...?

    Very much alike to what Rousseau said: Man is born free but everywhere he is in chains

    If you believe God is also metaphorical-a personification of nature, if you will-including our inner nature-then for me the poem becomes even more poignant.

    The phrase soul-and-body scars is thought-provoking. By hyphenating, Frost makes a single category of sufferings that are usually considered separately.

    the question is would you rather have had life or rather not..
    not only pertains to you but also the question is for any life..
    I would have to say yes..even knowing it is for a specified
    time and who really wants to live forever..your body would
    only fall apart eventually..so the best thing to do is enjoy
    life..you may not get another one..of course you may if
    God so wishes. :)
