Mid-Term Break The poem is about the death of Heaney's infant brother (Christopher) and how people (including himself) reacted to this. The poem's title suggests a holiday but this “break” does not happen for pleasant reasons. For most of the poem Heaney writes of people's unnatural reactions, but at the end he is able to grieve honestly. The boredom of waiting appears in the counting of bells but “knelling” suggests a funeral bell, rather than a bell for lessons. The modern reader may be struck by the neighbours' driving the young Seamus home - his parents may not have a car (quite usual then - Heaney was born in 1939, and is here at boarding school, so this is the 1950s) or, more likely, were too busy at home, and relied on their neighbours to help.

As the years kept going by, my father had moments of sobriety and converted to Christianity; however, it was a vicious circle. I was a teenager, and to me it was very embarrassing going to school and seeing my dad walking drunk around the school area. There was a time when a friend of the family went home to tell my mom that my dad had fallen asleep in a corner of a sidewalk between a car that was parked. My mother had told me to go running and wake him up, since I was younger and faster. So I ran and saw him there… to my surprise, the moment I went to wake him up, there was a man in the car getting ready to take off; as he saw me helping my father he couldn’t believe how he didn’t realize that there was someone laying there and he could’ve ran over him.
I have seen students go to college because their parents forced them to, then cut classes, not study, do way too much partying, and get poor grades. Far too often these kids end up dropping out and never finishing college--what a waste of time and money! Now don't get me wrong, I very strongly advocate going to college, but only for people who have what it takes to be successful in college, including having a desire to go in the first place. If a teenager went all through high school cutting classes, goofing off, getting poor grades and barely graduating, then what do you think is most likely to happen if they go straight to college from high school? Besides, you have to consider that teenagers are still young, naive and inexperienced.

My father used to tell me and my sisters stories about how he used to teach kids for free in Haiti because those children’s parents were unable to afford to send them to school. As I grew older and watched the years go by, I wanted to go back to college and finish so I can earn my degree, but there was always some complication that would arise and I would have to put college on the back-burner. A year ago, I decided to ignore the numerous obstacles that a single-working mother faces and returned to school. I used to believe that my father had lost his mind when he would want me and my sisters to read books and practice math problems during our summer vacation instead of spending the entire summer by the swimming pool. However, as I get older, the more I seem to be turning into my crazed-father that I used to complain about with my sisters.
