You have lost all hope. You feel like there is no way you are getting back up, and you wish you didn’t have to suffer anymore. Would you get up and try again or accept your fate? For Katniss in the dystopian novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, she had lost everything, but got back up every time to keep her family safe. For Tris in the dystopian novel Insurgent by Veronica Roth, she gave up entirely and wished she was dead, but in both of these stories, the authors used the mood of the reader and the protagonists’ actions to show that you shouldn’t let negative emotions control you.

This conversation was towards the very end of the book, in which we were able to see a clear moment of realization for Lina. Her hate had suddenly been less vague. Because there was close to no hope left in Lina’s soul after her mother died. The reason her morals are changing towards the end is because when there is close to no hope left, only then people have really started to think about reality and what is the true identity of those. Just before Lina’s mother dies she tells Lina that Kretzsky is only a boy.
In the poem Mother in a Refugee Camp, the themes of power and powerlessness are shown at the same time consistently throughout the poem. The powerless aspect is shown by the mother’s lack of ability to help her child, as he is described as ‘her tenderness for a son’ that she will ‘soon’ have to ‘forget’. This foreshadows the inevitability of his death and shows the difficulty of the position his mother is in, having to helplessly watch her own son perish. This is also further foreshadowed later on in the poem. Such as when the poet describes the mother’s actions towards her child: he says she is ‘combing’ the ‘hair left on his skull’.
As she stood there, her knees into the waters, her mind meanders to her past, when she was a child and she is literally yearning to meet her parents and her brother whom she hasn’t met since ages. She almost adjourns the thought of committing suicide. “Wouldn’t it be better to go around once, see everybody and then die?” (Narayan, 1956: 91). She is then reminiscing the fact that there is nobody and no bond that is as precious as one shares with their parents, brothers and sisters. No human relationship is as strong and as pure as that of a parent loving their child or that of an innocent love and concern between the siblings.

Her daughter, Isabella Ramos, was only in her senior year of high school, so the mother felt like she didn’t have enough time with her.

In the poem Mother in a Refugee Camp, the themes of power and powerlessness are shown at the same time consistently throughout the poem. The powerless aspect is shown by the mother’s lack of ability to help her child, as he is described as ‘her tenderness for a son’ that she will ‘soon’ have to ‘forget...’ This foreshadows the inevitability of his death and shows the difficulty of the position his mother is in, having to helplessly watch her own son perish. This is also further foreshadowed when the poet describes the mother’s actions towards her child: he says she is ‘combing’ the ‘hair left on his skull’. The symbolism of ‘skull’ is used as a representation of death and mortality, it displays the rapidity of his hair loss and emphasises the dangers of his starvation and protein deficiency. However the word ‘combing’ is used to show the mother’s unconditional love for her child and how she will always care for him and never give up hope, this antithesis fabricates an element of power in the poem, and demonstrates the powerful effect of a mother’s love towards her child.
