This line could be an allusion to Jesus and the bible. However, the word “light” could be alluding to The Enlightenment considering that Wordsworth was part of the romantic era. Despite the word “light” having biblical resonances, it also has others, which are more relevant to the context of Wordsworth’s work.

For example, to bequeath is when one leaves his or her possessions after his or her passing.

To one who strongly believes in Jesus, believes that he is the creator of all things—that he has created the bible and all of existence. The light could be a reference to God because light connotes serenity, hope, and positive energy, which God is.

We might envision William in pose of Rodin’s “The Thinker”:

This opening is the “expostulation” (remonstrance, kindly protest) that sets the poem in motion. The poem will be Wordsworth’s “reply” to the objection that he is too solitary and absorbed in thought.

A lot of individuals are cowardly and one-sided. For example, if there is a friend you have who is deemed as manipulative to his or her other friends, but you see him or her as a good friend, you would begin to question why their viewpoints of him or her is different from yours.

Referring back to the crux of this line, Pac questions why people do not confront him and badmouth him, to his face, instead of his quote-on-quote “friends” badmouthing him to others.

You motherfuckers kill me

This line is a reference to the definition of the word Colossus. Metaphorically, I’m saying that I am Colossus. Ergo, I am implying that I am someone who is abnormally large and powerful.

Colossus, or Colossus of Rhodes, rather, is a statue of the Greek titan known as Helios.

If one is a prophet, and he or she is only concerned with profit, then it is contradicting because the individual lives by a divine inspiration—one that is spiritual. One who is only concerned with profit would be deemed as an individual who is greedy, materialistic, and self-centered.

Wordplay: heart less/heartless.

When decisions are acted upon more by emotion more than logic and reason, there are chances that the outcome will not be well. Despite me saying that I am not heartless, I am limiting the use of my emotions—harnessing them.

How can one interpret a line such as I remember? It’s pretty vague.
