    Faith in god and love to the universe is a good thing to lead a good and perfect life. The great poet takes the opportunity to remind the name of god through the poem and a good introspction goes on and nice to read. (Report) Reply

    A good introspective poem of how others viewed him, but what they judged was not what he was. He was not the person they knew.
