Gathering the courage to tell his father that he was going to go fishing with his friend was hard for the young man to do because he knows it would change their regular routine of fishing together and possibly hurt his father. While contemplating on how he should tell his father, the young man thought, “It was a very serious thing” (16). In contrast to all the long sentences, the fact that this sentence is short emphasizes the importance of how the young man’s new idea of going with his friend instead of his father changes his relationship with his father. However, the young man and father’s relationship won’t completely change because they will always have a strong foundation, which they created when the young man was still a kid and they spent a lot of time together. The young man and the father spent so much time together while the man was a kid to the point that “his father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys” (20-22).
As I sat there for two days, I wondered what the house was going to look like, what the neighbors would be like, and how the schools were. I never had to think of these things before. Two days later, my parents came and picked me up. On the way to my new home, my parents explained that it was not like the house we previously lived in. That statement scared me because I did not want to live in a smaller house nor did I want to share a room with either of my sisters.
After seeing this, she decided to write a poem to her dad saying how much she loves him. One day, when he is taking his daughter to school he reads a poem that she wrote. After reading it, he realized that his daughter knows about how he lied all the things that he told her. In the end, if she hadn’t written that poem to him, more sadness and depression would have occurred to both of them and would not have brought happiness to them. In conclusion, his dad felt good after
These lines represent either the height of the child, which would be his father’s waist, or a more in depth meaning could be the spanking of the child. I say child because either one of the two scenarios would only make sense if it was a young boy. The younger of the two in the picture resembles a young man. Furthermore, the difference in age can be identified in the last stanza of the poem where the writer says, “you beat time on my head with a palm caked hard by dirt, then waltzed me off to bed still clinging to your shirt” (13 – 16). These lines reiterate both the younger age of the child and the unconditional love the child has for his father and their waltz.
We try day to day to try and face these things that we so easily make but to face them is such a hard endeavor. Everyday our lives get stuck in a stress loop from these things we call mistakes, they pile up if you decide not to face them. People who think it it smart to just ignore their mistakes are the people who live in regret. In my Senior english class we have read three sonnets that all appoint the message that we make the mistake of not living our lives to the fullest. Be the person who can live up to the mistakes you make and also help others face theirs.
I am going to come to you for everything. You’re honestly the best mother anyone could ask for. You’re honestly amazing, you’re so pretty, and you mean absolutely everything for me. You’re more than my mom, you’re my best friend. I love you so much.
Getting up in the morning is embarrassingly the only thing I can handle. I wake up then just lay there for hours. Everyone always says I just need to get up and eat breakfast or take a shower. That’s not the way it works. I just can’t get up.
Little by little days started piling up and we hit our one week together. We were texting that day and I sent her a song that I dedicated to her. It was my sisters first game and I went with her. I was hoping to talk to the love of my life but their was one problem. Her parents didn’t know we were going out and she didn’t want to tell them because they wouldn’t accept that we were going out.
