I need to know if my essay is too wordy or if it has too much evidence from the passages What is written so far:
Life can be bumpy, but can lead to missing family back at home, Motivation to continue on a long trail or even finding your own identity and leaving your old life behind.
In Judith Cofer’s short story “Volar” The mother is talking about how she wants to return back home with her family in Puerto Rico, but her daughter on the other hand wants to imagine shes a super hero and can fly in the sky at night. “when it was her turn to speak she would, more often than not, try shifting the topic toward her desire to see her familia on the Island: How about a vacation in Puerto Rico together this year, Querido? We could rent a car, go to the beach. We could…” (Cofer 2). The mother wants to be able to go back to her home town in Puerto Rico, but the father tells her that they don’t have enough money to afford trips there and back. As the mother and father where contemplating on whether or not if they should return to Puerto Rico, The 12 year old protagonist is having a reoccuring dreaming where she sees herself having long blond hair, and could fly in during nightfall and vision what they are doing. “I had a recurring dream in those days: that I had long blond hair and could fly. In my dream I climbed the stairs to the top of our apartment building as myself, but as I went up each flight, changes would be taking place. Step by step I would fill out: my legs would grow long, my arms harden into steel, and my hair would magically go straight and turn a golden color. …Supergirl had to be aerodynamic.” (Cofer 1). The girl’s description of how she looks is completely different then how she imagined it to be. The familys landlord appears in her dream and she knew her parents feared him. So the 12 year old enters the land lords home and starts a little ruckus. “Once I saw our landlord, whom I knew my parents feared, sitting in a treasure-room dressed in an ermine coat and a large gold crown. He sat on the floor counting his dollar bills. I played a trick on him. Going up to his building’s chimney, I blew a little puff of my super-breath into his fireplace, scattering his stacks of money so that he had to start counting all over again.” (Cofer 1). The protagonist sees that her parents feared their landlord and sees a opportunity to get revenge on him. She may not be able to do it in person, but in a dream is as close as she could get.
Just like in “Volar” by Judith Cofer, The main character from the excerpt, The Wild :From lost to found on the Pacific Trail, has her own struggles and wants to meet her own passions and goals. Strayed gets motivation to continue on the Pacific Trail. She states, “I looked north, in its direction—the very thought of that bridge a beacon to me. I looked south, to where I’d been, to the wild land that had schooled and scorched me, and considered my options. There was only one I knew. There was only one.. To keep walking.” (Strayed 15-16). Strayed was contemplating if she should keep going, but, she told herself that the only thing she could do was keep going, even if she didn’t want to finish the journey, shes already made it this far, so why not finish. As she starts her journey, she comes to a point of stop when she suddenly drops her boot down where she could not retrieve it.
One could relate to the poem “The journey” by Mary Oliver shows a girl fighting herself to either leave her past life and start a new one, or keep suffering and not finding out who she really is and her real purpose in life. The poem concludes, “as you left their voices behind, the stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds, and there was a new voice, which you slowly recognized as your own, that kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the world, determined to do the only thing you could do –determined to save the only life you could save.” (Oliver 24-36). As the reader slowly leaves the voices behind them, they see that they can’t hear the voices anymore, and that it is their own thoughts and choices and not somebody else’s. The reader finally broke free from the weight they have been holding on their shoulders and can finally think for themselves and find out who exactly they are without someone telling them otherwise.
Overall One can learn that there will always be those bumps in the road whether it is missing family in your home town, Achieving a long time goal, or finding out who you truly are. People have all types of journey’s, some that are a BIG adventure, and some could be considered a small journey. But Above all, journeying through life has a lot of challenging trials.
The instructions would to do a CERER paragraph but have evidence and reasoning from certain passages. Rewrite, and write the rest. I need it to be 1000 words, and if the rest needs to be re written, it can be.
