    defeat the unbeatable
    Ball is life
    Sherman Alexie is a Native American poet. He was born in Washington he is 46 years old. In his poem though he has different themes, they all revolve around him speaking of his life lessons and the natures of life. He doesn’t much talk about his life as a Native American or even much of his culture rather than his family and how they all have intertwine with nature. In one of his poems he said that his son saw him clap and heard thunder, therefore he thought his dad had created the thunder. This is him giving insight on the inner workings of the human mind and how we connect things. In two of his other poems he talks about a member of his family passing. In these poems he is showing that he understands that it is a course in life and our nature to have an end to this world, but the thought of them is still with him.

    I was raised to be who I am today;
    me.
    {Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 10.05.03 PM.png}
    Truth
    I am not strong, but I am not weak,
    I may be short, but Stand up high.
    I care,
    mostly of those in need.
    I know my friends
    and a lot of my family,
    but I know others need me.
    Listening helps,
    the souls in pain.
    So instead of talking about others,
    listen to what they consider shame.
    Who knows you can learn a thing or two.
    Prioritize your life.
    Thats something better to do.
    Listen and engage.
    because if you do,
    someone else's shame,
    can stop being their pain.
    I chose to do a free verse. Anything that came to my head I would continue to write about. When your honest with yourself, and write the truth, anything you say will sound good. You will encounter, imagery and a lot of rhyming.
    Adrienne Rich is an american poet. In her poetry,She uses a lot of metaphors, similes and overall a bunch of imagery. In this one specific poem "Final Notion" she wrote " it will not be simple, it will not be long it will take little time, it will take all your thought". If these sentences are further analyzed, the first verse says that something is not easy but it won't take long to accomplish. Then she goes on and says that it will take all your thought. Humans worry about every single detail because it is important, but often forget them in seconds. Adrienne Rich uses figures of speech to be able to engage the audience. Most of the time the audience doesn't feel engaged but she intentionally puts out every single perspective possible in order to engage all sides of the audience. She does not pick a side nor say its good or bad. She simply says what she and others think.
    Her family and surrounding have played a major role in her poetry. Before getting married, she was a regular poet who spoke about the things in her head. After getting married to the economist Alfred H. Conrad, she published another volume of poetry named Diamond Cuts. She was very fascinated in the vietnam war and was against feminism. She was a complete movement herself. With all the patterns and descriptions that she used, she engaged every audience member to stand up for equality and the rights that everyone deserved.
