    This is a sincere theory on how the world will end, maybe how a lot of things end... there's so much meaning in this poem. One of my favorites. I once written a speech for the Academic Decathalon in high school on this poem (Report) Reply

    'I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.'

    The fire may not burn the world nor the ice
    but it is the man who holds greed of desire
    and power of hate to the carry annihilation ahead.wonderful write. (Report) Reply

    The world does not end in Fire my Son...nor does it end in Ice.
    It ends with a decision of fools my before you say, Yes! think twice!
    For how the world ends my Son...has been proven over and over in Life.
    The Man no longer exists my Lad...the moment he takes a Wife! (Report) Reply
