The first time I heard this poem was while I was watching ‘The Twilight Series.’ What attracted me to the poem was the theme that human emotions are destructive when allowed to run wild. They can completely destroy the person.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
