This romantic love is usually developed over time and searched for by many in order to not be lonely, to achieve their idea of happiness, or to appease to the pressures of society to settle down. Besides that, romantic love relationships can bring a whole new feeling of pleasure to one's mental and physical self. For instance, one can feel the happiest in the world just by having their significant other by their side and believe that no one else makes them feel complete like them. Likewise, one starts to only care about what the other thinks and will do anything for the other to be happy.

Rap music from the 1990’s to the year 2000 is known in hip hop as “the golden era”. This era is all about individuality and innovation of creating music in one of the newest musical art forms. Rap music started out as the expression of young black youths in the inner city of New York. Rap music is rhymed storytelling accompanied by highly rhythmic, electronically based music. It began in the mid-1970s in the South Bronx in New York City as a part of hip hop, composed of graffiti, breakdancing, and rap music. From the outset, rap music has articulated the pleasures and problems of black urban life in contemporary America. Rappers speak with the voice of personal experience, taking on the identity of the observer or narrator. Rap music has lost a lot of it purity and essence due to the multimillion dollar business. Rap music is always critizied because of it’s violent and sexual nature but its just reporting what is views in this cold world.(Rose, 1994)

People from many generations may think that today’s music shows virtually nothing. This generations rap music mainly circles around how much money you receive from rapping, how much women you receive from rapping, and how much drugs you receive from rapping.

Kopano, an assistant professor of Mass Communications at Delaware State University, does a study on the rhetorical legacy of rap music. He starts off in this article how rap music to him is a legacy with rich history, “For rappers, ‘keepin it real’ means being
A dominant rhetorical strategy presented by the author was his use of formal tone which made his article more official. The author explains his point of view in how banning words in music such as hip-hop and rap would be beneficial using strict arguments. Also, the author detached himself from the article and did not use the first or second point of view. In addition, in paragraph 9 the author wrote “it would” as an alternative of “It’d”, in paragraph 10 “that is” as a replacement for “that’s”, and in paragraph 11 “it is” rather than “it’s”, which concludes that he used full words and did not simplify or use contractions in most of his words. He also spelled out the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People when he wrote
Britt Nicole was going through some difficult times in her life when she was seven years old. Her parents were going through a divorce and that made a huge impact in her life. At one moment she remembered running up to her room with tears in her eyes and opening her Precious Moments Bible.

The first poem “The beginning of the song that diverts the heart,” The woman metaphorically describes her love which shows her inclination to be with this man. The sentence, “My beloved, my darling, my heart longs for your love — all that you created!” describes how deeply she wants to be with the man (Egyptian Love Poems 77). Secondly, one of the lines that truly reveals the nature of the woman’s love is “The first to come / takes my bait. / Its fragrance comes from Punt, / its claws full of balm. / My heart desires you. / Let us release it together” (Egyptian Love Poems 77). Within this line, the woman’s mention of bait, and releasing it, is an innuendo for sexual fulfillment. Lastly, towards the end of the poem, the woman shows her true intentions with lines, “I am with you, I alone…You are here with me, as I set my snare. / Going to the field is pleasant (indeed) for one who loves it” (Egyptian Love Poems 77). This woman wants to set this trap, while being alone with the man, essentially capturing his
The song I picked for this homework assignment is called Runaway Love by Ludacris and Mary J. Blige. The song is describing the hardships of three young girls and their struggle to survive. Finally, the girls are fed up with the lives they are forced to live and decide to pack up their things and run away. I think this song can relate to many aspects of sociology that we have learned in class. Some examples shown through the song are poverty, education, healthcare, marriage and family. All three girls’ different stories and struggles they face.
Love and affection is an indispensable part of human life. In different culture love may appear differently. In the poem “My god my lotus” lovers responded to each other differently than in the poem “Fishhawk”. Likewise, the presentation of female sexuality, gender disparity and presentation of love were shown inversely in these two poems. Some may argue that love in the past was not as same as love in present. However, we can still find some lovers who are staying with their partners just to maintain the relationship. We may also find some lovers having relationship only because of self-interest. However, a love relationship should always be out of self-interest and must be based on mutual interest. A love usually obtains its perfectness when it develops from both partners equally and with same affection.
... lines of each stanza and the “Yes” before most lines. This makes the words really stick to you. I think the song is very affective because all of the comparisons he makes are all so true. I also think because he made the song from different perspectives including the blacks, whites, and the government makes a big difference too. It makes it so that you can rather see what it feels like to be in the different people’s shoes.
A Mad Girl’s Love Song In Sylvia Plath’s poem “A Mad Girl’s Love Song”, it is hard to determine whether the speaker is mad or going mad. Plath, along with all women in this time period, were defined by their relationship to a man. When a woman was abandoned by her beloved, it was Earth-shattering, as it still can be for many women today. Before the reader even gets into the poem itself, the speaker is already described as “mad” and this word has multiple connotations.
