Have you ever grew up having a hard life and anything or mostly everything you had to do for yourself? Yeah in the book Native Son By Richard Wright, he does everything for himself even his family once he gets a job. But before all he did was steal, rob, and have fights with his friends. The main three reasons that I will be focusing on is chose better people to be around, go to school, and lastly start treating others how would I would want to be treated.
First, If I was Bigger Thomas and I had to change I would chose better people to be around, I would try to make friends with people who actually want to make something out of themselves because how could I change and the only friends that I have just want to do the same thing every single day. The type of friends that I should have been hanging around since the beginning is the ones that try to do their best everyday. In Native Son Bigger and his friends are always robbing, stealing, and fighting one another, I wouldn’t want my friends doing that because real friends don’t fight each other.
My second reason about how I would change if I was ever Bigger Thomas honestly I’ll start going to school because you cant make something out of yourself without having an education I’ll even go to college it really doesn’t matter to me if u have to attend community college. All that matters to me that I’m changing for myself and nobody else. Having an education helps you with life, having an education takes you far you may not know what you can become. You cant become anything without have an education or having any type of knowledge.
Thirdly, I’ll have a lot of respect for others I would treat others like I would want them to treat me. I’ll start opening doors for older people, help them with their bags instead of taking them and running away, it’s always good to help others and treat others the way you would want to be treated. Disrespecting a person that’s older enough to be your parents or even your grandparents isn’t so much of a great thing to go about. When you treat people with respect younger children could look at as their hero or something like that.
Conclusion, if I was Bigger Thomas and I had to change these would be my reasons about how I would change and why, most people don’t think about changing ever. No matter what you go through or who you are is good change for even yourself and for some type of reason. (less)

Well the poem Mother to Son by Langston Hughes did that exact thing to me. As I read this poem our face turned upside down. The struggle of the poem is the best. It was that the mother's life was really rough, she didn't want her son to go through what she went through.The Imagery, Man ! the imagery used in the poem is the common imagery that is used in everyday life. However, not thought about in that same way. This poem is realistic. We can picture most of the things that are in "Mother to Son". These are some reasons why you can like this poem but there are many more !
The imagery in the poem is really outstanding , but you may not catch it as soon you read it. That's how good it is! The usage of it is normal but you have to think outside of the box to get it. Whenever you see imagery you see everyone use commonly. Also this way is common but used in a different way. Most would understand. "Don't you set down on the steps", as the mother says. You may think she is talking about the stairs we walk on but she explains the trials and tribulations of being alive. Which means the ways of living life as in happiness and or the struggle. In this specific poem, you can find alot of struggle.
As we mentioned in the paragraph above, struggle can be found alot in this poem. She had alot of problems she has been put through , but is trying to let her son know that life isn't always happy and filled with joy. There are something that you are going to be scared to do and somethings that you are going to be able to get through. "Where there ain't no light. So, boy, don't you turn back." This phrase tells you that there can be nothing but you still do not give up on it ! Anything can be hard or can make you feel like you are strugling but you can not back down from it. Perserverance is the key word here! So you say you can acutally picture what she is saying ?!
Yes you can picture the way the mother explains herself . She makes it seem like you are in the poem, which makes it realistic. You can see that the mother is been put through alot and you can say that it realisitic because you can put yourself into her shoes. Once you can relate to something it has become realistic. This poem can relate to alot of people so you can call it realistic
So what some mother's can't relate to Mother to Son the thing about this poem someone can learn from it ! Being a mother and growing up, having a hard life of course you wouldn't want your child having to deal with the something. She wants her child to have a life that she couldn't enjoy. Most people still this day can relate to how realistic Mother to Son is, anybody's mom can sit their child down and tell their child how rough their life was, just imagine all the hard times your mom went through. Maybe not having any lunch money or having to wait months and months to get a new pair of sneakers, because their wasn't enough money in the house hold.

Have you ever had to read a book for school and there wasn’t any if, ands, or buts about it? Well let me tell you the truth I have, the book was called The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.I really didn’t like this book, you know when you’re reading a book and you really can’t understand the grammar or language because there’s a lot of slang. Another reason why I didn’t like this book was the characters like a book can have its main characters but you can’t tell who is who. Furthermore my reason last reason on why I didn’t like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the book was just plain on confusing to me when something can be happening then just like that something else can happens. My first reason why I didn’t like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, because I had a hard time understanding the grammar and or language for example in chapter 8 I Spare Miss Watson’s Jim “Doan hurt me-don’t! I haint ever done no harm to a ghos.”see what I mean from reading this, there was a tongue twist. My second reason was the characters the first character was Miss Watson in this book slave’s weren’t able to learn how to read or write just because Jim wanted to know how to read and write there’s nothing wrong with that she didn’t want him to know because no one in his family knew how so she made him stop. The second character was Huckleberry Finn father Pap he was a junky all he did was drink and then try to kill Huck “he chased me round and round the place with a clasp-knife, calling me the Angel of Death, and saying he was going to kill me, and then I couldn’t come for him any more. I begged and told him I was only Huck; but he laughed such a screechy laugh and roared and cussed, and kept on chasing me up.” Last character was Huckleberry Finn if you talked about Pap you have to talk about Huckleberry Finn. He was confused about if him and Jim were best friends or not one minute they were, then the next minute they wasn’t. At one point he was going to tell on Jim. “then I thought a minute, and says to myself, hold on;s’pose you’d ‘a’ done right and give Jim up, would you felt better than what you do now? No, says I, I’d fell bad-I’d feel just the same way I do now. “Well, then says I, whats the use you learning to do when its wrong its troublesome to do right and ain’t no trouble to do wrong, and wages is just the same? I was stuck.” My final reason was this book was just plain confusing. To many parts in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn would happen at once, you could be reading about a character then next thing you know you’ll reading about a different character also why this book was confusing I couldn’t tell which character was who. Sometimes I would think that Huckleberry Finn was Jim when Jim is black and Huckleberry Finn was white, when I was really confused every time they brought up the name Tom Sawyer. (less)
