In No-Fly Zone, Smith has ambiguously talked about a girl (can be the poet herself) tracing a growth of African-American girl who must learn hard lessons of puberty and early adulthood and linking it to the history of America by depicting what it meant to be a black woman. With the use of elegy, figurative language, socio-political commentary, and metaphors in the third section of her collection, mainly in No-Fly Zone of Life on Mars, she talks about the ambiguity of what a girl has to fear in the society, her loneliness without parents, and why a girl has to save herself for her husband.

Bowlby investigated the results of several studies where children had been separated from their mothers and noticed stages that they went through â€“ initially crying and clinging to adults, then their activity diminishes and they cry less often, they then withdraw from social interaction becoming absorbed in their toys and finally if they are picked up, they struggle or cringe away from the adult. Bowlbyâ€™s work which he
