Yes because the poem was all about things that goes on in Life. It talks about being brave. tough, and being wise enough to face trials, adversities and obstacles that we would be facing. It tells us not to waste time and grab those opportunities that life may offer to us for we may not be able to have them again. The poem tells us to pursue in life to be able to achieve our goals for death is not the end of life, cause some says that the only end of the life is when you've finally accomplished your dreams and the real purpose of your existence.
hope this would help!
