The reader can assume that Komanuyakaa drew upon his own experiences in Vietnam, thereby making the poem a personal statement.

Sympathy, And Komunyakaa 's Facing It

- By using poetry as a medium, Dunbar and Komunyakaa are able to indirectly battle racism. Although the poets were born during different times, there is a clear division between blacks and whites, which is broken down by Dunbar 's “Sympathy” and Komunyakaa 's “Facing It.” Dunbar speaks out against racism and uses the caged bird to represent a slave within his poem.

Also, ways taken by the American administration, driven by the wounds of 9/11, focus too much on Al Qaida, even when it is clear that many more terrorist groups are threatening the United States....   [tags: terrorist leaders, attack, muslim]
