Intro to poetry

A poem should have a bunch of different literary elements. One other thing a poem should have is a deep meaning about the topic. What is optional in poems are rhymes or just short sentences. Poems should also include figurative language and could be written in stanzas.

42: reflection

Discrimination. Lets see what this word means. It means that a large group of people are against one individual based on their color, actions, gender or other things the people hate. This makes the one person feel sad and they can't do anything about because that large group of people are against him or her.


I thought 42 was an amazing movie, capturing all the moments of what segregation really was like. It made me sad when I saw how bad the two races treated each other, and for what? Their color. Jackie Robinson was offered to be a baseball player in the Brooklyn Dodgers by Ricky. Jackie had to be able to handle all the hate he was going to endure. This movie show us how stupid people can be just because one person is different. I was happy in the end that everyone was proud of Jackie Robinson and some kids even wanted his autograph. Jackie Robinson, The legendary baseball negro baseball player. Thats a name I came up with for Jackie.

When is there dignity in silence?

When your giving a speech, your audience have to respect you with their ears and not their mouths - Cesar Rendon

If someone were to yell at me, I would probably explain calmly about what I may have did. I think if you wanted to show dignity in silence than you can just listen to what they are shouting about and do what they want you do. You will find honor knowing that you did something good with silence and listened, even though you might want to scream at them.
