Songs are unique because not only are they poems, but they are musical, so they express much more emotion. Scotty McCreery’s song, “Five More Minutes,” is a great example of how metaphorical and sentimental a simple song can be. The song covers mundane events in the singer’s life, as well as impactful events, and relates them back to the same message; time goes by quickly, so cherish everything you have at the moment. Scotty McCreery recounts personal events, uses unique dialect, repeats key phrases, and uses metaphors to wonderfully convey the tone and message of his song. Most importantly, the artist connects with the audience on a personal level, which is unique and allows him to write in a simplistic manner.
I wonder if the narrator will pick the bass or Sheila. I have gathered some evidence in why the narrator might pick the bass or Sheila. I’m going to start of with the bass because its what I think he loves most. One reason I think he’s going to choose the bass is that I hope he realizes that that its one girl and he can find so many more his age and interest. I also should point out is that she doesn’t “hate” fishing
Growing up is a hard time, and for the three most important characters in the short stories, “Two Kinds,” “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant,” and “Fish Cheeks” it certainly is no different. It makes them feel unacknowledged when all they want is just independence and acceptance of the ones that they find to be important to them. Acceptance is something every person wants to gain from everyone, it just is not something focused on commonly. For Jing-Mei in the story “Two Kinds” acceptance is not something often found in their family.
Evan Armstrong Mr. Bird Period 3 The section from, The Company Man, by Ellen Goodman indicates the amount Goodman feels irritated and rankled by Phil through the way he carries on with his life. Goodman passes on these mentalities in three unique ways. The first being through speaking so as to mock comments and quotes, the second is talking intensely about him and scrutinizing him, and in lastly how she uses numbers and words to demonstrate that he is simply one more insignificant cog in the corporate machine that nobody thinks about. In spite of the fact that Phil is an "important person" at his working environment, at home he truly isn't anybody to his family, regardless of being his “dearly beloved” family.
Love is everywhere, it drives people and it creates people. It is represented through forms of art and media. It is an emotion every human is dependant on and plays a role in every person’s life. Love is the centre of acts of passion yet what leads many people into self-destruction and denial. ‘I Wanna Be Yours’ by john cooper Clark portrays the emotive experience of being in love.

In Kim Addonizio’s poem, 31-Year Old Lover, Addonizio introduces two characters, a 31-year old man and an older woman. At first I thought the man was her lover but really the 31-year old man is just someone who has a nice body as Addonizio describes in the poem and as the author portrays the older woman in the poem as being young and it is her way to contrast it with the process of the woman becoming old and weary. The last line in the poem Addonizio says to do with aging is, “I am going to have it back the only way I can” (1398), and it seems the only way she can get her youth back is trying to take his youth by sleeping with him. Addonizio, views the male body in a sexual way that as Addonizio quotes, “When he takes off his clothes/ the milky, lubricious of butter being unwrapped/ when its take from the fridge still hard”. (1398)
THE MAN MOTH BY ELIZABETH BISHOP In order to understand the true meaning of the man-moth we must understand the Author who wrote it first. This is a key feature in analyzing this poem. Elizabeth Bishop was more of a detached person in society. This probably occurred most likely after her psychological and physical sickness she underwent.
In the eighth poem, the speaker’s desire has reached unbearable levels. He has been suffering since his soul belonged to the beloved, whom he asks to judge if he really deserves such pain and to relieve him from his agony. The poem’s division into three sentences is underlined by the rhyme scheme and the shortness of each of the last verses of the two tercets that surround the rhyming couplet. In the first tercet, the speaker claims that it would destroy him if he could not touch the beloved’s body.
