When things go wrong,
When things don't go the way you wanted,
You know it's the right time
To call it quits.
He or she wouldn't know what you have in mind,
No explanation required,
You need no sympathy.
Miracles do happen, but not everyday
hope too much for the impossible, you may regret.
Believe in fate
For life ahead seems already arranged.
Or if you prefer positive thinking,
Do have a good dream.
No matter what ...
- A Dream Deferred
A Dream Deferred
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore-
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over- like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
While Langhston Hughes authors this poem, A Dream Deferred, it can easily be interpreted as Toni Morrison's description of Nel and her life of sorrow and dissatisfaction. Sula and Nel, the protagonists in Toni Morrison's Su...
- Dreams Of A Lifetime
Dreams of a Lifetime
Some people only get to dream about what life might be like if they had accomplished their life goals. Some people dream about what it might not be like. Steven was one of these more fortunate people until...
Steven had to overcome more pain during his lifetime then some could imagine. He dreamed of becoming a wealthy, well known business man, with a loving family. He had no clue that it would be so hard to accomplish the few things that mattered the most to him, h...
Seriously, I only witnessed the sunset few times during my existence. Though explanation may take quite some time, but do allow me.
Singapore- a tiny piece of land lying at the tip of Malay Peninsular. Having a population of around three million ( yes, same as the number of cows providing us with milk in New Zealand, as emphasised in that famous milk advertisement), that leaves us pondering over the suffiency of living space for the growing nation.
Adolf Hitler wanted livi...
- Dangerous Encounter
It was a dreadful afternoon, big droplets of rain fell directly on my face and clothes. I tasted the droplets that mixed with my tears, the tears I cried after the incident. The pain in my foot was excruciating. It caused me to make a big decision of whether I should visit you or not. I decided I would. I limped towards my bright, blue car where my bony, body collapsed onto the seat. I started the engine up but at the same time being cautious of my bleeding foot. ...
- Imagery Depicted Through T.S. Elliots
Imagery Depicted Through T.S. Elliot's
Kortnie Mariah Hahn
The imagery depicted in T.S. Eliot's poem "The Hollow Men" evokes a sense of desolate hopelessness and lends to Eliot's generally cynical view of civilization during this period in history. A reaction of deep and profound disappointment in mankind around him is made evident in this stark work, first published in 1925. In this short piece, Eliot enumerates several deep faults he finds in his fellowman, including hypocrisy, apathy and in...
- Modern Man - The Unknown Citizen (Auden)
Modern Man - The Unknown Citizen (Auden)
The English-born American writer Wystan Hugh Auden was one of the most important poets of the 20th century. Educated at Oxford, he attracted attention as a prominent member of a group of young leftist writers who generally expressed a socialist viewpoint. The poem I have chosen for this essay is "The Unknown Citizen". I felt the time period reflected W.H. Auden's views, making the unknown citizen an example of the government's view of the perf...

If I could make his dream come true
Now Jack is an old man of sixty five - a friend of mine and he is an invalid. Having been a child of two years he injured in a car accident and became paralyzed forever. It made a great pain for his young parents and then for him when he began to understand what kind of fate he has, but sitting in a wheel chair he continued his life.
I don't know - maybe he wold become a famous man, if he had his body healthy, or a hero. Sometimes he told me such...
- Freshman Yearimbas
I remember walking into South Brunswick High School on the first official day of high school freshman year. It was like nothing out of the ordinary. I had already been in the school all summer. I was there every day for summer football practice with coaches: Homman, Simmons, and Harding. The big, black, wrecking ball, Jacey Padgett, and I were in competition for the starting fullback spot of the JV that summer. I won. So needless to say, I was feeling pretty go...
- The Witness
The dark sedan pulled quietly up outside a comfortable family home in Quarter Close. The brick residence stood silent and dark in the early hours of the morning, looking much like the rest of the houses in the Grove. However, inside this house lay the prosecution's sole witness in the most important case in the history of the state. Without him, the trial could not go to court. His life was in danger.
Joel Granger stepped from of the car with two colleagues and the three men...
- Frosts Mending Wall Vs. Floyds The Wall
Frost's "Mending Wall" vs. Floyd's "The Wall"
From Robert Frost's Mending Wall to Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall, humankind erects and maintains real and symbolic barriers to protect and defend opposing stances, beliefs and territories. Although each "wall" is different they serve the same purpose and both Frost and Floyd oppose them. Robert Frost's Mending Wall is a very popular poem. This poem consists of two characters: the narrator and his neighbor. In this poem the two n...
- The Disney World Adventure
The Disney World Adventure
Throughout my childhood I can recall many memories that caused emotional delight as well as emotional devastation. My memories go back as early as conquering my fears of sleeping in the dark to acknowledging I was never going to learn how to skate. Those few examples don't compare to the one childhood experience that still haunts me today.
I couldn't wait for my family and I to take our annual vacation. It was during those times that I enjoyed myself mos...

- The Oak Tree: A Symbol For America
The Oak Tree: A symbol for America
America, our great country, is strong, powerful, and influential. Americans exemplify positive values, selflessness, hospitality, and the American way of life. The mighty oak tree that stands taller, bigger, and older than all others best represents this grand country. Each part of the tree illustrates a facet of our nation.
Shapely emerald leaves covering the tree symbolize the values many Americans hold concerning themselves, others, and their nation. ...
