Fire and Ice


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire

    Noor al-abri, there is absolutely no way for him to keep it up, he is dead, sadly yes, but the only possible way for him to post new poems is if a person discovers poems written by him. Good poem, one of my favorites. (Report) Reply

    Total destruction is by it's very definition total. A few things to consider, those that keep comparing fire and hate are misreading the poem, fire is desire, and ice is hate. Fire, desire, greed, avarice, want. Ice, hate, loathing, fear. Another thing to considers that this poem is somewhat tongue in cheek, the point I think is that destruction is destruction no matter how it comes about. What matters is what you do with your time, how you live, and inevitably how you face down those final moments in your life. The method of your destruction is just one part of the greater story, don't get so caught up in the end that you ignore or forget the now. (Report) Reply

    This poem gave me inspiration for my own writing. Without Robert Frost and his Fire and Ice I woulnd't enjoy taking a penicl and paper and creating magic. Writing is magic... (Report) Reply

    shows that most men go with desire and involve themselves in hatred which only brings destruction and the end of the world(the inner conscience) (Report) Reply

    He's also comparing two eschatology’s (beliefs about the end of the world) one is that the world will be Judged by God

    … the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.2 Peter 3: 7

    the second is the more atheistic view that the Universe is going to go on and on and eventually die what's called a heat death. Meaning that the Universe will expand to the point that all the energy is so distributed it's just a frozen wasteland.
    http: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_death_of_the_universe

    So since he sides with those who favor fire he does think God is gonna wipe the slate clean one day, and bring justice to this world. But he's saying, even if He doesnt, and there's no God, no meaning, no life, no love no desire no Truth, no nothing, then the coldness of mans heart will just as surely bring an end to all things just like the coldness of the Universe will.
