Blackout Poem-“When I Consider How My Life Is Spent”

The poem “When I Consider How My Life Is Spent” by John Milton has a deeper meaning that readers need to think about. The poem is telling the story of a man who went blind in this vast world, his talent are dead or considered useless. However, he still wants to serve God and tell his story. He was considering about that does God care if a person work when he/she can’t see. A person called Patience told him that God does not care about if people work or carry onw load, it is how people carry their life. Although this person’s present is powerful, the speaker still believe that people should stand in a state of readiness until they are needed though they can not use their gifts. The theme of this poem would be that people should always believe that they are useful for God, though they are disability. This poem gives people power to life especially the people who is disability. The author used personification, for example, “But patience to prevent”, patience can not prevent, he imaged patience as a person. “in this dark word and wild”, he used imagery to describe a image of darkness which after he went blind. “His state Is kingly” this sentence was in two line, the author used enjambment.
