2-Healing and Forgiveness as a Sign of Altruistic Filicide: Morrison points out "the past, until you confront it, until you live through it, it keeps coming back in other forms. The shapes redesign themselves in other constellations, until you get a chance to play it over again" (qtd.in Cássia Freitas de Aquino 198).

Walk Two Moons takes its time to show you that Sal's mother died whereas the poem “Missing Mama” is right to the point. One of the feelings that they both go through is not being able to go with their mothers and be with them forever. In Claudia's poem, she writes “The day that you left I just didn't know, That you were going where I couldn't go” They both feel miserable about losing their mothers. Claudia’s feelings towards her mother aren't as deep as Sal’s to her mother.
The author uses metaphors to give us a better understanding of what her mother meant to her and how she was like. The form of the first three stanzas shows how the mother was always there, day and night protecting her daughter and the very last sentence shows the daughter detaching from her mother and thanking her for always being there for her. I personally think it is nice to write a poem to show your love and thankfulness to your mother or guardian and that everyone should do that at some point of their life since having someone that teaches and loves you and helps you grow up is very

Most of the teachers just let the students have the day off, but a few dispensed assignments like nothing had ever happened. It somewhat offended Jessi.
The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult
In this journal I'll be relating my feelings on and interpreting Alberto Rios' poem "A Chair She Sits In." With Alberto Rios's poem, it's obvious that this poem speaks about death, theorizes about why we stick around when we die, and talks to us about the habits in our modern day multi-media lives that we get hooked on as well as the habits and comforts a little simpler than that in our lives. This poem comes off to me as being quite melancholy. The writer of the poem writes in this poem as though he stares at death in the future and look within himself, his habits, his identity, and with fear for what's beyond for himself.
