Many people cope differently as we will see in, “Barbie Doll”, “David Talamantez on the Las Day of Second Grade” and the “Suicide Note”. In the poem “Suicide Note” by Janice Mirikitani, reveals her disappointment of her inability to rise to her parents standards, which becomes too much for her and she takes away her life.

As a young kid or even as an adult watching the person who is supposed to raise you and teach about love, and everything you need to know in life will greatly affect what type of person you turn into. One of the most heartbreaking things you can go through as a child is watching your mother slowly die and then watching your father struggle to take care of her and provide for the family.

This was my first experience with death, and I can clearly remember the sadness and confusion I felt during and after my grandmother’s funeral. Trying to come to grips with losing my grandmother was difficult enough, but I found myself having to take on the responsibilities my mother’s depression had rendered her unable to do. Though my mother eventually recovered, I had no idea at the time that watching her struggling with depression would be an augury for my own personal battles with
