For example, in example of line two, “I walked past a dead face.” She, the author, starts using these words by explaining that she is in a terrible life time, going on hard times in life, by this line at the beginning of the poem; she starts telling the reader that what the poem is all about, it has some kind of sadness ideas.
In line three “even though the person was alive” she shows the irony of life and the order of life. She shows that for one thing to live another must die. Yet, on the other hand she also shows the important thing that a life means because it says that she does not says if she is alive or not; she still suffering from something, but she still awake. Also, in sentence number four and five she says some similarities “I saw my eyes in the mirror and cried at the sight” I think that she means that she looks back her self and she still in a bad moon. In lines thirteen and fourteen “when I thought about love, I got hit bad” She means that not everything is loosen there is always something that it not there but It could be at any time.
In the following lines it starts to contradict the meaning of the poem by saying differences and opposite things such as lines twenty-one and twenty-two, “I realized I was strong when I didn’t cry when it hurt.” Means that not everything is over because she notices that she is really a person, as same as other people, strong, she is someone. Finally she explains that she founds who is she, what she was doing and she also noticed that it is a someone who has a personality by this words; “I thought I was lost forever when a friend found me.” Line twenty-five.
The title of the poem is a very good point. The title describes the poem almost to perfection. The title “I am someone”, it shows the grand main points of a life. Some people consider it selves lost forever but there is always a solution for problems. I think the poem was very good. I feel he did a good job on choosing this poem due to the fact that have many ideas to have it developed and understand. She has good analogies, and phrases. She used the “I am someone” theme to describe the overall picture of her poem.
“People’s lives are made up of many events that change and determine who a person will become. Everyone deserves to be noted for who they are and what they did. This is a piece of me, and who I am.”
