Berries, Roots In the poem “Grandmother”, by Douglas Nepinak, the poet discusses the loneliness and struggle of a woman who does not know English which creates a barrier in communicating with her family. The change I had to overcome was difficult but it had to be conquered; moving to a new house, which meant having to wake up earlier than I needed to get to school in time. Change can at times be hard for people to live with and eventually overcome. People often fear change in their lives because they have a sense of control and comfort; a sort of safety net on which they can rely on. Change comes with certain adjustments, and everyone deals with these adjustments differently; therefore, ultimately, the poet suggests that if these adjustments are not met with reality at the right time, it can be costly to everyone involved.
The main topic of the poem is about virgins and how they shouldn’t wait to become sexually involved with a lover, but I feel that this poem can be used at anytime in a person’s life.

Not only do lines 1-4 compare the beauty of the youth to roses, but it also describes the uncertainties of a person’s life.

“work without hope draws nectar in a sieve.” This means that work needs a motivation or hope. Otherwise no one would work. “Hope without an objective cannot live.” This means that hope can only survive if it has something to return and hope needs a person, otherwise hope wouldnt exist.
