Many authors write poems to express different types of feeling such as happiness, sadness, or judgment. In these poems the authors talk about being judge, and criticize and how they dealt with their struggles. Many people cope differently as we will see in, “Barbie Doll”, “David Talamantez on the Las Day of Second Grade” and the “Suicide Note”. In the poem “Suicide Note” by Janice Mirikitani, reveals her disappointment of her inability to rise to her parents standards, which becomes too much for her and she takes away her life. You see the speakers disappoint when she states, “dear mother and father/ I apologize/ I’ve worked very hard, /not good enough/ harder, perhaps to please you/ if only I were a son,” (4-10).
Despite the minor setback, I could not contain my excitement and muffled my squeals with a pillow. When I had reached the heart wrenching moment, I could not help but cry for Avery’s loss. Closing in on the last few chapters, I could feel fresh tears streaming down my face. Avery Roe suffered the loss of her first love, the rejection and death of her grandmother, and finally realized why her mother had locked her away in their grand mansion.

For a while, I could not find them, so I started crying and scared that I would not see them ever again. A nice lady helped me as she saw me crying, and got help from employees to find my parents.

“It was her sister Josephine who told her, in broken sentences; veiled hints that revealed in half concealing.” (pg.1 paragraph. 2). According to Chopin, Josephine is very cautious of the way she reveals the death of her husband to her sister. Like most other women in this time Josephine felt that she needed to hide the news when telling Mrs. Mallard, because Josephine believed that she would take the news poorly. When Mrs. Mallard was informed of the news she was initially saddened, but Mrs. Mallard did not respond as expected as illustrated by the author; “She did not hear the story as many women have heard the same, with a paralyzed inability to accept its significance.” (pg.1 paragraph.3).
