"Counting Stars" By: One Republic

Ryan Kim

Theme

This song has a lot of deep meanings to it. It tells you about how you shouldn't take anything for granted, and not to be controlled by money. When you worry about money and the future, and how you are going to get by, you should be aware of other things around you and what you have right now, and believe that it'll be okay.

Literary elements

This song has a lot of unique literary elements hidden in it. Elements you should look for include: simile, metaphor, hyperbole, idiom, oxymoron, symbolism, irony, and personification.

The world around us

I think that a lot of the worlds people are consumed and are controlled by money and that money determines everything in your life, like what job you have or your social status. I think that we should be more aware about the beauty around us and all the other things in the world that are worth more than money and a blessing.
