Intro poetry reflection

1.) I think that a poem should have meaningful/thoughts/words/feelings & stories that can help you understand life better? Or make you look at things differently.

2.) it shouldn't have miss spelled words. It also has to make sence because you need to be able to understand it.

3.) I noticed that some were talking about something random but used very specific and smart words.

4.) I saw that these poems still express everything that they're thinking about whether it's irrelevant or not.

42 reflection

Discrimination for me isn't necessarily about skin color, for me discrimination is sort of like racism, because you're technically discriminating someone or being racist and just judging them. It's not accepting someone for who they really are. When you expect the same thing from every single person. We're all different but a discriminator would hate admitting that. They only want to see the same exact thing on everyone. For example, they would hate gay marriage. All they want is for everyone to be like them exactly. No flaws or anything, because they can't seem to understand that everyone is different and makes them unique. At least, that's in my opinion of course.

When is there dignity in silence?

If the principal accuses you of something that you didn't do you should explain calmly.
If a younger sibling calls you names to make you angry you should stay silent to make them angry.
If the referee make a call you think is unfair you should explain calmly.
And if a friend yells at you for calling a play against him you should yell back.

There are a lot of times where I wished I would've stayed silent but instead I talked back and got punished for it, but oh well. I guess that's how I learned my lesson, or at least I'm in the process of it.
