Abandoned by her mother at three-year-old, married at the age 19, three children at the age of 26, and with only a fifth-grade level education. My mom was in prison for a month after struggling to cross the Mexican border into the United States. My mom came to American seeking a better future where my siblings and I did go hungrier to be able to survive. The poet is describing the word “Migration” that takes a different method in relating what is crossing the border as well as tense perceptive effects that occur when it comes to crossing the border. Rosa Alcala’s poem has persona, metaphor, images and figures speech the author can illustrate the feeling of the poem as attentive vagueness.
Although in the 60’s, when this song was first released, women might have had positive views about this song; because in fact women’s role 50 years ago was mainly adhering to their man’s need, whether it being supporting him, serving him or pleasing him. In which the
Using the carnival as a background is appropriate because it is a time of celebration when everything is in chaos and people have lost their self-control. The carnival may be a symbol of Montresor’s own madness and the crazy thoughts in his head. The carnival usually indicates joyful social interaction
To start off, the first stanza in her song represents a sense of how unavoidable change is and how the confusion of the bond combined with the stress of the blame game can lead to a doomed
From the beginning of William Carlos Williams’ poem “The Red Wheelbarrow” the reader is captured by the statement “so much depends” (Williams line 1). As this short work continues the reader is seeing a graceful image that Williams creates. The mind’s eye can envision a painting that is tranquil, yet has the quiet activity of a rural farm home. With this in mind, what exactly is the author sharing with the reader? The poem communicates charmingly the dependence a man has for a vital piece of equipment.
"She could only just recognise the tune for what it had once been. Not that coarse parody, stilted and mechanical, a tin brashness, a gaudiness of noise." Unpleasant and irritating sounds and noises suggest the lady's discomfort, as if the song was
The last lines of the song are just repetitions of previous lyrics the repetitions can be reflected as being the urges to go through with the vial which in the end she did as the following lyric is “I choose defeat I walk away and leave this place the same today some like to sleep we like to play just look at all that
03 | TO FIGHT "I'm sorry, but the cancer's too widespread. There's nothing we can do." Stepping backward, I watch as the woman in front of me begins to shake horribly, loud sobs wracking her thin frame. Beside her, her girlfriend squeezes her hand, a frown on her face.
Her lyrics are very real to say, she talks about how people see other people. She also talks about how people don’t value others, and how did replace people real quick. She also states don’t think that you can have my love to waste, she is defending her honor in a way. She’s talking about how people are seen and how they are undervalued, but she is basically saying don’t undervalue me. She is saying that she’s not like everyone else, that she shouldn’t be seen as everyone else has been
When they first started dating, they promised that they would always be together and that no one would come between them, that they would always love each other. She goes on to say that lately they’ve been fighting a lot and she wishes that things could go back to how they were at the beginning of their relationship. She asks, “Can we start again, do it over, can we straighten it out, can we work it out?” Since the breakup, she doesn’t want to be, live, or go without him. She also says that she doesn’t want to be alone. She says that she can’t sleep, think, eat, speak, feel, be, or even breathe without him, “My whole world is upside down.” She doesn't want to go out. She feels like she’s going to die without him and asks what she is supposed to do, “It's hurting me that we don't talk no more.” They no longer communicate since the break up and she seems to be displaying signs of depression. “People with depressed moods can feel sad. They may lose interest in activities that were once pleasurable, experience loss of appetite” and have problems sleeping (“Depression”). She finishes the song questioning why their relationship isn’t working out and where did it go wrong. In the end, she feels that they should still carry on with their
What is remarkable about Four Women is the skillful yet overt approach to dealing with a sensitive construct. The song is
The last two lines represent the woman acknowledging the fact that many women before her have gone through this same experience. Time is is “rolled” or repeated in the sense that everyone was brought to this world in the same way. Line nine refers to the child having no awareness of itself or the world around it. The woman has created a life and that life has no idea that it is loved by her. The emotional connection between the mother and her child is developing on a deeper level.
Poetry is a reduced dialect that communicates complex emotions. To comprehend the numerous implications of a ballad, perusers must analyze its words and expressing from the points of view of beat, sound, pictures, clear importance, and suggested meaning. Perusers then need to sort out reactions to the verse into a consistent, point-by-point clarification. Poetry utilizes structures and traditions to propose differential translation to words, or to summon emotive reactions. Gadgets, for example, sound similarity, similar sounding word usage, likeness in sound and cadence are at times used to accomplish musical or incantatory impacts.
The Caterpillar: Pillar of Thought The Caterpillar is a poem which focuses on the previously overlooked actions some of us may partake in, that may not be thought much of, but have short and long lasting effects on a scale we might not be very familiar with. Do we feel remorse for living organisms on a small macroscopic level, or is it just an insignificant part of our complex lives? Is the appreciation of life developed through experiences? Do we feel more pity for a single being that has been through trauma than we do for thousands that have not? In this poem, the conflict between caterpillars and humans is discussed in a such a way that brings up questions about how valuable we perceive other life to be, and how different
Analyzing the word, "beautiful" in this stanza, one should perceive that she is not actually singing about the outside of her, but what she consists of emotionally and mentally on the inside. She reveals that her thoughts and emotions are of worth and value and they are of her opinion. They are consumed through her, and no one else and if anyone disagrees, she does not take that into affect. Her diction is actually pretty precise. To quote a famous cliché, beauty is not skin deep. She explains that the beauty is the sentiment.
