Theme Of Choices By Nikki Giovanni

142 Words1 Page
The theme of “Choices” by Nikki Giovanni is that she has to make do with what she’s got. For example, in the poem, it states,” since i can’t go where i need to go then i must go where the signs point,”(Page 195). This connects to our theme because she has tried to do what she wants, but each time, she gets drawn back so she tries to make do with what she has. Another example would be when the poem says,” when i can’t express what i really feel i practice feeling what i can express,”(Page 195). This is relevant to the theme because she is not allowed to express her real feelings so she tries to express the ounces of happiness she has. To conclude, sometimes life can be hard, but people have to make way for what they have.
