If you had a choice on how the world would end what would you choose Would your choice to be go painfully but fast Perhaps you would rather it be so slow and painless you do not even realize it is happening Thats what I believe Robert Frosts poem Fire and Ice is meant to express Although the poem is short it holds a very interesting question to think about The question is which way would you rather the world come to an end There are two choices The first two lines in Fire and Ice express the choices Some say the world will end in fire Some say in ice I feel that he uses the term fire not to hold the direct meaning of a burning flame but to represent the punishment something can inflict upon an object It presents the image of the intense pain in which a burn can inflict along with the extraordinary speed in which it happens Fire causes a tremendous amount of destruction to virtually anything within seconds It could also represent just a violent ending Either way it would be nice to have things over with fast but the intense pain might not make it worth it For the world to end in ice seems to present the image of a slower numbing effect I feel he uses ice to represent a slow almost unnoticeable change that eventually causes the destruction of mankind Fire instantaneous combustion of an object Frost uses fire to represent an ending with incredible speed and unimaginable pain The quote From what Ive tasted of desire seems to represent the tendency of people to be impatient The way many people of today are they can not wait They must have what they want and they must have it now That is one of the main purposes of a loan Someone wants a car but does not want to take the time
