It is time for John to be hung and he asks for one moment to speak to his wife in private. When John speaks to his wife he tells her about everything he has done, he realizes he doesn't want to prove what he was gonna prove anymore and he wants to sign away his name. John thinks to himself about what he would go through and the other options besides being hung. He plays out the scenarios in his head before he finally decides to just be hung. John says to Elizabeth, “ I have been thinking I would confess to them, Elizabeth” (Miller 135).
He wishes that he had good looks, friends, luck, skills and more opportunities and he wishes that he would think it’s weird to like the things he enjoys most. And in Sonnet 30 he has turned from that poem in away. He says in lines 1-4 he says that he sits in silence to remember the past and he gets depressed that he never got any of those things he once strived for and adds more tears to the ones he cried in Sonnet 29 for wasting time. Him doing all this is causing him to grieve about the grievances he once had to let go of but now has to recount each cry and cry about it again going through the same pain as before, Sonnet 29. But in the end of both Sonnets he gathers up his feelings and cries and stops once he thinks of a better thought Sonnet 29, Him being happy with himself, Sonnet 30, the thought of a dear friend.
We had gone back to the intensifying stage, and it was like that until she had her second boyfriend: Billy. I had never met him personally, so I do not have a real emotion towards him, but his whole person rubbed me the wrong way. He was the ex-boyfriend of another friend of mine; which was awkward for a while, but that didn’t concern me; what did concern me was how much she liked him. Adrianne wanted to spend all her time with Billy, and only talked about him. It wasn’t so bad at first, I could understand why she was so excited about a new relationship.
He came to me because I was his friend, he said “I don’t know what to do..” Amazing how two choices presents itself but a person could not choose. This caused me to be sad, it’s really bad for a person to fall in “between” two or more choices when he/she has to choose for the sake of his/her own life, and I can relate, it’s very hard indeed to be indecisive because you are scared of the consequence and how it might affect the future ahead and

When Sally got married she thought that she will escape from her abusive father and finally get her freedom that she had dreamed about before. Little did she know, her husband would be as protective as her father was over her, so eventually she had given up every aspect of her freedom. Looking out of the window was one of her last hopes and pleasures that she had but Sally’s husband didn’t allow her to do that either. Sally says that “She is afraid to go outside without his permission”(Cisneros, page 102). In this vignette, you could tell that Sally’s husband was the one that prevented Sally from having any freedom, which caused Sally to feel like she was trapped in some kind of a
She says “But my sons, forgetful of me” suggests that she knows her sons has forgotten about her and started a new life for themselves in the city. They have forgotten about her otherwise, she would not have had to write to her own sons pleading them to come back to her. She also cannot help to feel abandoned and jealous of the mothers whose sons come back for a visit or permanently “I see the sons of other woman returning”. She also feels frustrated when she says “What is in their minds”. She cannot comprehend how her sons can just leave their mother to survive on her own.
This shows how he doesn 't quite know his daughter well enough to really be able to see her true potential, and it shows how he doesn 't truly treasure his daughter. This may also hint at the father 's disappointment in Adeline because he doesn 't believe she did it, so perhaps he never believed she could really do much or amount to anything, and that might be why he 's so ecstatic and proud of her - proud enough to invite Adeline into his room, which she earlier described as "The Holy of Holies - a place to which I (Adeline) had never been invited". Despite the fact that all of the interactions in the text can be understood superficially without delving deep, Adeline Yen Mah 's sentence structure and choice of language definitely change the meaning and message behind the words. Adeline Yen Mah might not be a flashy writer and she might not stand out as other writers, but her writing is well-thought out, and she writes in a crafty way, which is meant to make the readers analyze everything she writes. She is one of the many examples of how writers are like painters who are trying to paint the most
She had always wondered if the man had fulfilled his promise or not. Whenever she thought of this story, she wondered what the promise was an if the man had kept the promise?

She was not excited to see her co-worker Phil, who like all annoying co-workers assumes all the work you do is wrong and that they could do it better. Phil constant complains that she should be fired.
“Kennedy your mom has made some decisions that give us the reason to separate.” I looked at him confused, “Well what happened, I mean, i’m not stupid I know divorces’ don’t happen for nothing.” My dad looked at me and told me to keep the secret because he knew it wasn’t fair to leave me in the dark when I already had a pretty clear idea as to what was going on. My dad told me what my mom had done and it all made sense. I started to shake and become stiff. My heart was broken because I had been lied to for the past two years by my own
