Here are my notes about the slideshare:
Marred: spoil, ruin.
Emjambment: literary term
The voice want forgiveness because he feels he doesn’t deserve gods love
So god ask him, Do you lack anything?
What do you need?
And he answerd that he needs to be worthy to be here
God is trying to explain to the speaker that everybody deserved to be love by him
The voice feel very embarrassed and god took his hand, he was approaching him
Stanza 3: I deserved to go to hell
And god reply: who’s tho blame? Everybody sin
TWIST: he feel worthy, he accept god’s love
Biblical reference about taste my meat: to be part of me, accept my love. My meat is my body, like in comunion, last supper.
Enjambment:You have to read all the way through without stopping for a breather. This literary term make the reader continue reading to understand the message.
My own explanation of the poem:
This poem is about a person that thinks he doesn’t deserve gods love because he is a sinner. During all the poem, god is trying to explain him that everybody deserves to be love by God, by him. He refused until the end, when he accepts Gods love and start being part of it.
In my opinion, I think that this poem leaves a moral, no matter how many times you’ve sinned, God will love you. It is a very good poem, and I like that is a fluent conversation with God. This poem is very touching and I really like it.
