This journey was not easy for my parents, but throughout they thought of their children first.I was even told that they once ate only apple peels, sparing the fruit part for me.
I was two years old and the youngest of seven children.
I thought of how I could have been such a burden on my parents but they have always assured me that I was wanted.
A hero is someone who helps people, saves people lives, and risks their lives for someone else’s life.
A hero can also be someone brave, cares for someone, loves someone.
My hero helped me growing up, telling me from right to wrong, teaching me things that I don’t know, helping me when I got hurt, and teaching me how to live life.
Example: helping me with math homework, helping me when I fell down the stairs a few times, and helping me when I went to the hospital, so this is why I picked my parents to be my heroes.
In the poem “My Parents” by Stephen Spender, the theme of freedom is clearly indicated by the use of similes, metaphors, lack of rhyme, enjambment and imagery to convey the stark contrast of freedom between the street boys and the poet.
Spender also explores the complexities of bullying reflected in the rough actions made to the poet.
My mom got another job and slowly our living status began to rise.
We went off welfare, then my parents bought a car and gradually they saved up enough money to buy a house; this was the true sign of our prosperity.
