Speak Up

The Unfairness

Theme and Speaker's Attitude

The theme of the poem is that you shouldn't judge people just by the way they look because they may not be all that you think they are. The speakers attitude is very calm and non confident. She never threw a nasty comment, but I got the feeling that she was hesitant and wasn't confident in standing up to that person.

Poetic Devices

"Sounds funny. Sounds strange." This is repetition. "...somewhere else. Sometime." This is alliteration.

DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!!!

The images

The images that I chose represents the mood because they describe how the girl must feel. The most noticeable image of this is that there is a bully picking on someone else, and that must be how the girl might have felt.
