A Anonymous letter I got!!
If its about looking back on ones past, or looking at what one has made of "life" then I think there are maybe some other poets who have said that kind of thing more lyrically yet simply. Take Macbeth's soliloquy - if thats not about the pointlessness of "life" then I dunno what is, but look at the language - very simple:
Quote:Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
