Throughout the poem she describes several insecurities she faces and how her mother is unapproachable. My reaction to this poem is that, I sympathize with the speaker because at this stage of a girl’s life, she needs someone to be there in order to help her with all the questions that will come and make her understand she shouldn’t feel insecure about the changes in her body. I feel pity for this teenage girl because it is evident that all she needs is the support from her mother and she doesn’t get it. For example, at the end of each stanza the author states, “and momma’s in the bedroom with the door closed.” The closed door symbolizes the separation there is between the mother and the child because the girl can’t get in to speak to her mother. I think that no mother should let their child go through puberty alone because this is when we start to question our body and things that happen to it.

Through examining Amy Tan’s book The Joy Luck Club, Sandhya Shetty’s painting Mother and Daughter, and “Sonnets are full of love, and this is my tome” by Christina Rossetti, the power of a mother’s influence is evident. As the prominence of a mother’s wisdom grows, a daughter’s perspective will transform by understanding her relationships and situations. To describe the relationship between a mother and daughter as “complex” barely scratches the surface. For many, it is full of appreciation and admiration, frustration and contempt, or wonder and awe. Since birth, a mother and daughter feel an instinctual pull towards the other to care for and be
