In the above poem Ayim tries to fit in her hyphenated/two part identity into one inseparable whole. Although she states that: “[her] fatherland is Ghana, [her] mother tongue is German” (Ayim, Blues in Black and White 46), her Afro-German identity is adaptive to and inclusive in her surroundings: “I have been living and working in West Berlin and feel more at home in this city than anywhere else” (Blues in Black and White 47). However, racism causes her to feel estranged even after the unity of the two Germanys: “The new “We” in “this our country”—Chancellor Kohl’s favorite expression—did not and does not have a place for everyone” (Blues in Black and White 48).

In “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, the color red symbolizes uncertainty of how life will play out. It was neither autumn nor summer, the time in which death was prominent. The garden was stained brown, and the bleeding tree arose from the ground, intimidating the atmosphere. The young boy recalled his dear little brother, Doodle they called him. “He seemed all head, with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man's....Daddy had Mr. Heath, the carpenter, build a little mahogany coffin for him. But he didn't die, and when he was three months old, Mama and Daddy decided they might as well name him”(1 Hurst).
