The author Eric Hanson reminds me to prioritize my happiness and let go of things that are making me gloomy through the character in the poem ‘Holding on and letting go’. This text is about an individual who finds it difficult to discard the emotional attachment she has developed to the thing that is hurting her. The character mentions, “I always thought that holding on, was worth the pain it takes.” She has settled on sacrificing her own happiness most likely in fear of hurting someone or someone hurting her. But in the end, she makes a choice to put herself above the satisfaction of others and realize that positive things can come out of letting go. The negative connotations at the start of the poem made me feel helpless as a reader because the character seemed to be in a powerless struggle with her conscience.
Also Jordan’s personality is brought up as her voice is heard throughout the whole letter. For example, Jordan having forgotten about her friend and how she doesn’t even ask how her friend is doing imply how she only cares about herself. However, details about how Gatsby dressed and how Daisy felt even though she didn’t tell it to Jordan show Jordan is also highly observant. Also sarcasm is used, which is typical to Jordan’s character. Examples of that are “The so very pure and innocent Daisy Buchanan” and “as you know, I love nothing more than helping people”.

However, by the end of the novel, she is considerate of others, still pushes for her beliefs in a more polite and educated manner, and embraces the fact experiences have value. Different experiences such as the hanging and Roger’s death teach the horrors of society, her mother and the Jewish lady teach Catherine how to be herself, and animals like the ant and the bear teach her how the little things could be huge to others. One experience that leads Catherine to discover the need for change is her lack of both sense and direction. She often speculates about all she will do when she grows up. “I am no minstrel or wart charmer, but me”(Cushman
In “Making Sarah Cry,” the mood of the story is not very violent, while on the other hand, “The Watsons Going To Birmington” is a more violent text, with the bombings and segregation. In the poem, “Making Sarah Cry,” the author shows us that the theme of the poem is acceptance. In the beginning of the text it, states, “Treat others with respect, son the way you’d want them treating you and remember when you hurt others someday somebody might hurt you.” This shows acceptance because his mother is telling him that he should accept others for the way he wants to be treated and accepted. In the middle of the text, the narrator keeps bugging Sarah and making her cry when really he should be accepting her and treating her like a normal human being for who she is. This shows the theme of acceptance because Sarah is crying every day because of them not accepting her and the boys really should be accepting her or just don’t bother with her.

The speaker of the lyric begins by tending to a lady who has been ease back to react to his sentimental advances. In the principal stanza he depicts how he would love her if he somehow managed to be unrestricted by the limitations of a typical life expectancy. He could invest hundreds of years respecting each piece of her body and her protection from his advances would not debilitate him. In the second stanza, he mourns how short human life is. When life is finished, the speaker battles, the chance to appreciate each other is gone, as nobody grasps in death.
Now that I’m a bit older, I can still very much appreciate her pretty words, but I can also better understand her situation and maybe even why the words seemed to flow so freely for her. As a bit of an introvert myself, inner worlds are especially important and can be retreated back to wether surrounded by numerous people or in candid seclusion. For this reason, just as losing my beloved book taught me, I believe Emily Dickinson’s relationship with nature epitomizes the cliche that absence makes the heart grow fonder. In addition of course, to nature itself being her closest
