Driving down White Oak Road in a brand new Bugatti, noticing the 18 wheeler next door. All of a sudden, a screech and a huge shift, the brand new car is flipped on its side. Whether driving, or being stuck in a scary situation fear can have a huge amount of affect on a person’s life. Fear can affect people’s lives by scaring them to an unknown point on what to do or just by mentally disturbing.
When caught up in a moment people tend to freeze up, go speechless, or just give up on the issue. Freezing up can cause the situation to go worse. For example, if an animal had a person life locked up in a corner with no help, there would be no time to freeze up. They would have to act fast for safety.

Metaphor Poem

Caitlin DeAguero
English 1-7

Caitlin was the name I was stuck with,
and i’m stuck with it until the day i fade away.
even when i wish for something more exciting
like the way the name summer not only describes a season,
but a childs name.
The bright shiny sun, no school, and blue teeth from the snowcones.
names the describe memories.
Tripping over the sound of my name
breaking through my confidence bubble
I used to dream of the mad runway
models surrounded the busy scenes
everywhere you looked,
or went,
someone always knew you.
My world was in my head
creations, model schedules, and giant diamond earrings.
I was famous
everyone knew me.
Intending to not like my name,
I realized,
year by year
moment by moment
I was human. Everything had happened for a reason.
The way my face was shaped,
the way my green eyes didn’t pop out like the blue ones I pictured.
I grew up
matured into the person I was,
not Summer all in my head,
but Caitlin, in the real world.
