Still I rise by

The theme of this poem is to never let anyone bring you down.
The clues in this poem that describes this theme is when she said"Did you want to see me broken?Bowed head and lowered eyes?Shoulders falling down like teardrops.Weakened by my soulful cries.Also in the poem she says"you may shoot me with your words,You may cut me with your eyes,You may kill me with your hatefulness,But still, like air, I'll rise. These clues in this wonderful written poem describes the theme of this poem.

This message of the poem applies to my life and many ways.One way is sometimes people always try to put me down but they can't .If they do put me down I would always rise back up.Also I can connect to another poem that I've read, The name of this poem is I ,Too,is America.
This poem connects to the other poem because they both having like the same theme, never giving giving up, and never let anyone bring you down.

Hyperbole of My Dog

While I was reading this poem I found many examples of hyperbole.
One example that I found in this poem was"Little girl is my dog.
To me this person is trying to explain that the little girl acts like a dog and this person is saying that the little girl is wild like a dog. Another example I found was"When she sees food her eyes starts to spend. This person is trying to explain that this little girl loves food and the girl must of been very hungry so when she saw the food her eyes must have popped out.

I think that the author use hyperbole in the poem this way because he/she might of wanted people to see what he/she mean about the little as being a dog

A Poem called My life

My life is ruined
My life is wrecked
My life is in danger
My life is a threat.

My life can't go on
My life is a disaster
My life is like trash
It's like I don't matter.
