In his poem “Disabled,” Wilfred Owen vividly describes the physical and psychological toll that war takes on a soldier. The speaker in the poem is a young man who has been wounded in battle and is now confined to a wheelchair. He is bitter and angry, and he feels that his life is over. He remembers how he used to be, full of energy and life, and he can’t help but compare himself to the other soldiers who are still able to fight. He is envious of their ability to walk and run, and he feels like a burden to them. The speaker is also haunted by the memory of the moment when he was wounded, when he saw the light of life slowly fading from his own eyes.
