1. Explaining the Poems
These poems represent death my life. They represent my own emotions and questions. Of course, they can't be answered due to the people who with hold the answers are no longer with us. When some we care about passes away, we are left with questions. Some questions are easily answered, especially when the cause of death is from an illness. However, when a person we care about dies suddenly, we are left with unanswerable questions. These unanswerable questions are due to car crashes, suicide, murder, accidents, and or a combination of some or all. They leave us with emotions that are hard to understand. These poems are intended for those who have lost someone suddenly. One can only hope to have answers to the unanswerable questions that hang among us. The one question that has hung over my head for sometime is from the book "Looking for Alaska" by John Green, "How will I ever get out of this labyrinth of suffering?"
I will include the essay at some point that I originally made me think of this. The essay is based off the novel "The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien. I will also include poems from different people that I found amazing and may not symbolize death.
