reading log 2

from out of the blue 

1 .my response is from a  poem “from out of the blue” by Simon Armitage. This poem is about a man who is in the world trade centre when two planes become highjacked and fly into the two buildings this causes many death. the writer of the poem shows us an imagine of a man  showing  his view of the poem and makes us the reader feel like we are on the ground watching these planes crash into the two towers .

2 .Reading this poem it has revealed to me so much more than i knew about 911 , when the writer made me feel like i was right there during his poem on the ground helpless to the situation yet feeling reasonable for him in the burning tower. him feeling helpless  “do you see a soul worth saving ” this made me feel like he did not feel like he was worth saving or anyone else in the burring building and everyone on the ground didn’t want to save them . the writer also made me feel the tension and what it was like to be up there during this time .”the heat behind me is bullying ,driving “this showed me the heat from the fires must of be so intense that he gave  the fire a human trait such as the fire was bullying him because we know bully can be horrible and mean how he used it was the fire was an extreme  temperature burning him as he stood there with no where to go . “my arms are numb ,my nerves are sagging” this gave me imagine of the pain he was going through and that he was start to give up hope .

i can relate to this because of a time I’ve felt stuck not knowing what move to make next if i was gonna be stuck in that mental state for ever or if anyone was gonna help me out of there   , waiting there like the man helpless while i felt like everyone watched me on the ground . durning this time like i felt like i was stuck in that  burning building feeling like i was going to be stuck in there for ever not knowing if i could ever gain those friend ships back again or if i felt alone forever but unlike the man i got out of that burning building slowly from a new  friendship
