Key Question #20

In this poem there is a metaphor, repetition, rhyme scheme and personification. The metaphor is “the desert wan an hourglass”, the repetition is “we have made this, we have made this”, the rhyme scheme was “it will stand today, but went in anyway”, and the personification is “the scandalous sun”. The repetition added emphasis to what the writer was trying to show with the poem. Also the personification helped prove a point of how extreme it was out in the desert.

Tashi Coote The poem above is quite clear of what it is about the poem is called Depression Is When. The poem speaks to me personally due the struggles I have had with depression. Throughout the entire poem the writer is using the repetitive figurative device to start each line “depression is when”. She attempts to make it more personable by adding “you” to each line. She also used rhyme scheme for the first two lines “depression is when you hate everything around, depression is when you don’t want to make a sound”. The theme of this poem is depression as clearly stated in the title and in each line. But it isn’t just about depression, it is also about the effects depression inflicts on a person feeling the symptoms. Also she is very blunt and forward about the feelings she is trying to portray. When reading through the poem one either image themselves feeling the same as its describing or image someone else feeling depressed and seeing them break down. Also it makes oneself feel bad for the writer of the poem for the fact that one may believe that she is depressed.
