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). Beloved's return to 124 Bluestone Road is very symbolic because she has the key to forgiveness for herself, her mother, sister, and the whole Bluestone Road community. A-Recreating a lost Relationship: Sethe and Beloved: Although Beloved could not forgive her mother for sending her alone to the other side, Sethe comes to realize that only chance to overcome her past as a slave and her altruistic filicide is to remember and recreate her past. She has to narrate her life story, and confront Beloved in order to release herself from the psychological wounds of the past as well to forgive herself for the unforgivable crime;
After moving around so much, she gets tired of it and writes a letter to her mother to come and take it with her.

The town gossips because they are nosy and curious, Emily kept to herself and did not come out of her house much. “WHEN Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at least ten years” (Faulkner).

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. “But gosh, how I miss you and wish you were here.” this quote is from the poem “Missing Mama”.
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

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 being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
