Bruce Springsteen himself, the speaker, represents a young man who is ready and wanting to take a chance. He may want a companion, so he is asking his female friend (perhaps lover) to come on an adventure with him, to hold his hand while they both take a chance. Of course, Mary is cautious, so at the end of his plea, Springsteen tells Mary to “climb in” because “It's a town full of losers, I'm pulling out of here to win” (Springsteen 1975). The singer represents the anxious, confident part of all of us that believes in destiny and taking
In my opinion, J. Cole made this song to put awareness on the fact that abortion, though not always agreeable, is an option. By including the different points of view he also shows different sides of the argument of abortion, in favor and against it. As well, he also makes it clear, with the dialogues, that the decision should not be made alone. The situation could be flipped. The girl could want the abortion, and the boy may not.
In her essay, Sallie Tisdale describes some of the clients she had and the conversations she had before and after their abortions. The first client she mentions is an eighteen year old woman. Despite being so young, this is her fourth time being pregnant (Tisdale 414). Immediately, the audience notices the awful
I notice a lot of pathos was being used throughout the song and video. As the song and video builds, we start to see conflict begin to happen. We witness the gay man beaten to death by the anti-homosexual mob and the lover couldn't make it to the scene in time to save him. While this is happening, the soft piano then turns to a louder melody matching the tone that Hozier is singing in. We also see a quick glimpse of anti-homosexual protests on a TV screen.
During the second scene of the film, when introduced to the protagonist of the film, Chris Washington, the song “Redbone” by Childish Gambino plays. The chorus section of the song sets the mood for the entire film. As the chorus of the song goes, “But stay woke *****creepin ' They
His intent seemed to be mostly to deliver the song to a different audience rather than to use the song to tell a story that he related to. Additionally, he altered the meaning of the song somewhat, but he did not add much of a new perspective given that the song was still coming from the point-of-view of a man who had gotten his heartbroken by his lover. In contrasts, Fats Domino’s original version seemed like it was intended to cover the mixed emotions that one may feel at the end of a relationship, and
Thank goodness, she turned out alright. But I’ll never risk it again. Never! The strain is simply too - too hellish,” (36). Larsen uses words provoking anxiety and horror to give the reader insight into Clare’s mind when she thinks about pregnancy and motherhood.
Pattyn had become pregnant with the love of her life’s baby. Of course she didn’t tell her father and she tried to run away. This teenger has had such a hard life and these events show how she coped with them. “A lot of life is dealing with your curse, dealing with the cards you were given that aren’t so nice. Does it make you into a monster, or can you temper it in some way, or accept
The mother says, “Guilt no matter which way you go. Guilt if you do what we are doing or if you bring ‘ em into this world and then she doesn't have quality of life,” (Wilson/Shane). The father prays saying, “When you left the room we/I prayed and said if I’m not supposed to be here, if we aren't supposed to do this give us a sign right now and we won't hesitate to get up and leave. I want the life for my child to be as good a chance of any,” (Wilson/Shane). This was to appeal to pro-life audiences because most are religious, even those these intentions of the director are somewhat effective, they are overall very
In the beginning, the speaker says a brief statement of her feelings about abortion, “Abortions will not let you forget, You remember the children you got that you did not get” (lines 1-2). These first two lines explain how her children will never realize certain accomplishments in life, this also shows a mother who is unable to forget the dramatic events that have emotionally scarred her. The speaker later on says,
The reality of the situation was that she had no control over her father’s death. There was nothing or no way that she could have prevented the events that took place. Although she was extremely angry with the situation at hand she learned that she had other things to be grateful for. She wanted people to know that even though something or someone has passed away you can’t stay stuck in the state of depression forever. You have to step back and look at your life because the reality is, life still moves on.
She felt the baby move all the time and to think that she has to abort the baby was the most horrifying decision she had to make in her life. She kept telling the doctor that she won’t abort it, she hears the baby’s heart beat and she can’t kill her baby. Couple of weeks passed and she started feeling weaker and weaker. The doctor told her that there is no time they have to abort the baby because if they don’t her life is in jeopardy.
