Your World

By: Georgia Douglas

Your world is as big as you make it.

I know, for I used to abide

In the narrowest nest in a corner,

My wings pressing close to my side.

But I sighted the distant horizon

Where the skyline encircled the sea

And I throbbed with a burning desire

To travel this immensity.

I battered the cordons around me

And cradled my wings on the breeze,

Then soared to the uttermost reaches

With rapture, with power, with ease!

Poem Main Idea

The writer is talking about breaking out and soaring around

the places that she has yet to reach. She talks about the experience she could have

and how she so much desires to travel. Then towards the end she opens up and flies.

Why this Poem?

I chose this poem because I feel like it can relate to not just me but a lot of people. So many people feel so trapped in their world that all they want to do is soar to sore somewhere else and explore the world. We all have that "burning desire" like Georgia describes in the poem. Then when people finally get set free and begin to "soar," it's the best feeling in the world.
Kelly Clarkson - Breakaway


I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly

I'll do what it takes til' I touch the sky
And I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won't forget all the ones that I love
I'll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away (I will)
And breakaway

"Connection Theme"

The connection between the song I chose and the poem are very much clear. Both are talking about spreading their wings and flying, which is figurative language for wanting to get out in the world and explore. Both the poem and song have such powerful meaning to it. In the poem Georgia talks about just fleeing away from her corner and in the song Kelly talks about leaving where she's been and accomplishing things way bigger then she could have ever dreamed of imagined.

Spinning World

Do you ever feel like you just don't belong?

That you could make a wish and it would all be gone?

We're all in this world without a voice,

And some not able to make our own choice.

Should we choose to fall down the dark road of passion?

Or choose to follow our own unique fashion.

So hard when no one knows what you can do.

It's time to step out and show them the new you.

Breaking out of the shell and hoping not to fail.

It's time to break free and soar high.

Break free into the big blue sky,

Where white clouds come and take you away

And you feel like you can just fly.
