When I read the lyrics of "Man in the Mirror", i think of how someone would want to change self,how they want to make a change in the world, also how they have so much wealth and never helped the pour. alot of people come in the world as followers, and not leaders. one day they come to realize that they need to change something. it may not be thee people they hangout with, or they find they are not happy with there jobs, but they need to change thereself within. they may have accepted things for so long and cant deal with it anymore, or they been holding on for something to long. some people feel that they have a purpose in life, to change something in the world. that despite everything that done happened in there life they still have a purpose of change. they can help at least one person in there lifetime. that if they cant change the world, they can change a life. lastly, they have alot of people in the world that are very much so wealthy, and they may think about helping the pour,but dont. or they think that the pour should get up and hustle just like they did. as the lyrics state "It's Time That I Realize That There Are Some With No Home" they have to look at the positive things. what they was blessed with other may have not been. people always looking at the bad, when you should always look at the good. in conclusion, micheal is looking at himself and what to change him before he start to change someone or something else. he want to look back at what all he has been
Man in the Mirror – Michael Jackson
Feb 5th 2013
This song has to be my all-time favourite. It tells us that in order to make a change you have to start with yourself, and the rest will follow. In some way everyone can relate to this song. We all have these big dreams and imagine these amazing things, but nothing will ever happen unless you start with yourself, no one else can make those dreams come true, only you. “Be the change you wish to see in the world- Gandhi.”

The Time Capsule: A Flash From The Past
Item 1: Letter of Introduction
Dear reader from 100 years in the future,

I had a good upbringing in Georgia as an only child. I served in the United States Army and attended college simultaneously. I was a very busy…

The tale of “Bloody Mary”
Do you believe in Bloody Mary? Do you believe that chanting “Bloody Mary” three to a hundred times in front of a candlelit mirror will summon a vengeful ghost? The legend is if you go into a bathroom and look into a mirror with the lights off and chant “Bloody Mary” women will appear and attempt to kill you. I was always interested in this as a child when I finally was brave to do it my cousins locked the bathroom door without…
and how different it is today. The Door a poem by Miroslav Holub paints the illusion of the psychological development in attitude from that of hopefulness to one of determination. ‘Man In The Mirror’ a song by Michael Jackson portrays the concept that to alter the world around you, you must start with “the man in the mirror” because only from within can change occur. These three texts have increased my knowledge and understanding of the different perspectives change can evoke in a responder.
Setting in the Passages
The setting in the passages progress from natural objects to man made objects to mirror how
when man takes over land ruins it and it fades from perfect to corrupted. In the first passage,
only nature is talked about and is described as living. The image of the "horizon ris[ing] and
fall[ing]" mirrors an image of a person's chest rising and falling as they breathe. The wind and
the afternoon are described with active and full movement…
In this poem, “Mirror in February”, the speaker’s state of mind is analyzed. We are able to see into his mind as we look at the imagery and diction used in the poem.
To begin with, the first stanza details “dark trees” and “dry air”, which conveys a sense of uncomfortable darkness. There seems to be a gloomy state of mind. The speaker “towels his shaven jaw and stares”. However, in the line that follows, he does not stare at his OWN eye and mouth, he stares at “ a dark exhausted eye, a dray downturning…
unfamiliarity. Change is what many may not be able to be prepared for, not so much because of the transformation itself, but because of the consequences of said transformation. Melina Marchaetta's 'Looking for Alibrandi', Michael Jackson's 'Man in the Mirror', and the prescribed visual all detail not only change, but the effects and repercussions.
Within Looking for Alibrandi, a mental journey of both growth in maturity and growth in the understanding of the social constructs of Josephine's world…

Many societies have developed political philosophies. In the ancient Mediterranean and the Middle East, these philosophies often took the form of what are known as "instructions," or tracts written from a father to his son, dispensing relevant political advice. Sometimes these were from rulers to their heirs, but often they were from…
people staring at her, and maybe a fourth person at the back right side who could be somebody that works for the painter by the way they are dressed. There are other characters who could be the focal point too such as the man in the very back who is reflected by the mirror, or also the man who is painting looking at the girl with the white dress. Balance, texture, rhythm and color are principles of art. From this painting I don’t think there is balance, because it won’t have the same portions if we divide…
