This week I read the poem, “Apron Strings” by Beth Gylys, the author of the poetry collection “Close to the Shore”, published by Michigan State University Press. From what I gathered about this poem, it is about a businesswoman that lives life in the fast lane in order to provide a decent life for her young children, but due to her rat race lifestyle that she is caught up in, she is unable to spend quality time with her family, and as a result her child is affected by this.

This quote supports the characteristic of low self-esteem. Self-esteem is how one shows themselves to society.
When I tried talking to one of the girls, they said about their situation at home and how they ended up the place they are today and also about what they do after you graduate high school. What I got was that after they graduated high school they were dropped by on the streets to start a new life by themselves, which doesn’t always turn out well and some end up to be prostitutes and thieves. They only depend on people’s donation since the government doesn’t give them enough money for food and shelter plus only a few donate to them, so it is hard to keep feeding a million mouths while a billion more are waiting for their
However, Lena could not bear to let her father know what Ying-Ying said, and translated the accusations differently in English.
