My days became brighter and my dreams that were crushed turned into a hope. A new hope to start over and to begin a new verse in my song. I found that the pages that were written in my book were in bolder notes that stood out like a beautiful rainbow in a sky full of clouds. I lived day by day and moment to moment learning to cope with the things thrown at me. My song seemed no different than most others songs that were around me, however, I felt it was.
You should lift them up and provide to them someone who will be there for support. If the whole world could understand this basic concept of how to treat one another, imagine how much better this world would be. Finally, my reason in choosing this song is that it provides reality within a song that applies to not only the U.S. but the whole world. It also provides support to those who aren’t as fortunate as others and those who are going through hard times in their lives. Lupe Fiasco uses motivational and inspirational phrases throughout his song that motivate me to keep fighting through struggle and pain because in the end it’s worth it.
Receiving judgement for my own personal leap of faith, taught me that happiness within yourself is the most important happiness you can have. This made me think of myself as a strong person. My “friends” were not happy that something that brought me joy and more confidence. Consequently, I lost these friends but instead, made a handful more. I not only gained friends from cheerleading, but my new social-butterfly personality gave me the ability to
My intended audience is very varied, it can range from students aged 14, looking forward to year 12, to parents and grandparents aged up to 80 years old, trying to understand what their (grand) daughter or son is going through. I chose to go with quadrants in my poem as this allows each stanza to be short and succinct while still carrying a powerful message to the reader. The intended two line rhyme, was to represent how even though year 12 is a struggle, there is still a bit of fun along the way.
Imagine that everyone was doing hard tasks that prove to be risky and dangerous, and challenges soon rose around these difficult tasks. These tasks would be devastating and generate life decisions, such as the question: who would you save, who are you going to save, Do I have to save this person or can I run away from reality? What are the costs of these questions and what would everyone’s challenges be? Challenges are everywhere-they are significantly the hardest element everyone must go through. Without challenges, the world would be a place with no improvements and a futureless world.
Perseverance is the determination to push through the trials and tribulations fate has thrown to test strength. Throughout my life I truly believe I was tested through adversities and my triumphs made me perceive the difference I could make not only to my community, but also to the people I have crossed paths with. Hard work also plays a role in my life as a willpower to pursue higher dreams and to not settle for mediocracy. Being born and raised in a third world country, me and my family didn’t always have everything we wanted nor the opportunity to change our circumstances. Nevertheless, we had each other and we were more than content.
These people have a worrisome reaction to this new world, and their questions are endless. Generally, people tend to panic when they are scared and confused. Before entering the Glade, these people have no recollection of their past, but somehow remember their name within a few days of arriving. Based on their first experience which is arriving in fear and delusion, their perception of the Glade starts out as negative. Due to the extreme circumstances within the Glade community, all the characters are on edge upon arrival.
Although music allows me to express so many parts of my life, the main factor it seems to define is my past experiences. Obviously, specific songs seem to be more effective with helping me cope with the past or get a better understanding of my feelings towards an event. The first time I heard the song Daughters by John Mayer, I was in the seventh grade, about 13 years old. Now I am 18 and after hearing thousands of different songs, I still believe this is the only song that perfectly expresses my feelings on my experience with my father. In this song John Mayer allowed the lyrics to express how a father should
As an individual, you make an impact in this world even if we don’t see it. I believe that with this song it captures the message that life matters even afterlife because you leave you trajectory. Life gets sometimes difficult but we should never stop trying to better ourselves. I believe that life isn’t easy as we want it to be. There has to be hard times to help shape us into the real person we were destine to be in
