¬†I ¬†picked ¬†this ¬†poem ¬†thinking ¬†this ¬†seems like ¬†a ¬†funny ¬†title ¬†and ¬†it ¬†would be a confusing poem ¬†that ¬†had ¬†a ¬†simple ¬†title ¬†but ¬†a ¬†deep ¬†meaning. ¬†This ¬†poem ¬†had ¬†a lot ¬†of ¬†alliteration ¬†the ¬†roots ¬†er ¬†and ¬†re ¬†were ¬†repeated ¬†very ¬†often,and ¬†the ¬†only ¬†roots ¬†used ¬†in ¬†the ¬†poem. ¬†The ¬†only ¬†exception ¬†to ¬† this ¬†order ¬†was ¬† the ¬†the ¬†first ¬†line ¬†in ¬†verse ¬†five ¬†where ¬†minotaur ¬†was ¬†used. ¬†The ¬†minotaur ¬†was ¬†placed ¬†there ¬†I ¬†conclude ¬†to ¬†break ¬†the ¬†steady rhyme. This ¬†is cleverly placed to bring the ¬†attention ¬†of ¬†the ¬†reader ¬†to ¬†the ¬†conclusion. ¬†‚ÄúHere ¬†is ¬†where/ ¬†You ¬†can ¬†get ¬†nowhere‚ÄĚ ¬†This itself ¬†starts ¬†the ¬† poem ¬†at ¬†a ¬†negative ¬†context ¬†and ¬†a ¬†feeling ¬† of ¬†hopelessness. ¬†This ¬†in ¬†the ¬†poem ¬†represents ¬†life ¬†as ¬†being ¬†where ¬†you ¬†are ¬†your ¬†fate ¬† has ¬†decreed ¬†to ¬†be ¬†there ¬†is ¬†no ¬†point ¬†of ¬†struggling ¬†or ¬†trying ¬†to ¬†run ¬†away ¬†from ¬†it. ¬†All ¬†of ¬†life‚Äôs ¬†problems ¬†are ¬†symbolized ¬†as ¬†the ¬†corn ¬†mazes ¬†twist ¬†and turns. ‚ÄúLike any other/ You can‚Äôt peer over/ ¬†And then another.‚ÄĚ The twist in ¬†turns ¬†in ¬†this ¬†poem ¬†like ¬†problems ¬†cannot ¬†be ¬†seen ¬†ahead ¬†of ¬†time ¬†you ¬†just ¬†run ¬†into ¬†them.

When ¬†you are done dealing with one problem the ¬†next one appears. As we try to shape our ¬†destinies ¬†by ¬†ourselves ¬†we wake blindly not knowing what ¬†we do assuming we we are doing ¬†whats ¬†best ¬†for ¬†us. ¬†‚ÄúYour ¬†inner ¬†minotaur‚ÄĚ ¬†is ¬†a psychological ¬†term which can mean your fear ¬†of ¬†the ¬†unknown ¬†or ¬†your ¬†destiny. In ¬†psychology ¬†it ¬†is ¬†said ¬†that ¬†you walk on hands and knees ¬†blindly ¬† until ¬†you ¬†are ¬†able ¬†to ¬†confront ¬†your ¬†inner ¬† minotaur. ¬†Which ¬†coincidentally ¬†correlates ¬†with ¬†the ¬† poem. ¬†‚ÄúBut ¬†on ¬†you ¬†blunder‚ÄĚ ¬†shows ¬†the ¬†severity ¬†of ¬†our ¬†method ¬†of ¬†pursuing ¬†our ¬†destiny. ¬†To ¬†summarize ¬†the ¬†poem ¬†I ¬†conclude ¬†that ¬†this ¬†poem ¬†shows ¬†the ¬†futility ¬†of ¬†life of how ¬†no ¬†matter ¬†how ¬†hard ¬†we ¬†try to ¬†run we have acknowledge in the ¬†end that we have accept we ¬†have ¬† go ¬†nowhere ¬†in ¬†life. ¬†I ¬†like ¬†the ¬†pace ¬†of ¬†the ¬†poem ¬†it ¬†goes ¬†at ¬†steady ¬†pace.
