Pathos is the rhetorical strategy that is used to tug on peoples heart strings and make them understand what the author or in this artist is trying to get across. Every lyric in this song could be traced back to pathos but I have picked a select few that really stood out to me. “After all this time that we tried I found out we were living a lie”, when you here Ashanti sing this line you can hear all the pain inside of her because her partner has been cheating on her. The next lyric that stood out to me was “I thought it was you and I now all I’ve got to say is why?” This lyric was used to show how disappointed she was that they were not together anymore. In all I think that pathos was the best approach to get the listener to understand where she was coming from and to understand her
Loja had come from a large family of nine with a very poor background and a lot of suffering and pain but also were fortunate to have a little redemption and prosperity in their life, though they never became rich but they were able to attain the lower middle class status in their country.Loja was the second oldest boy of his family he knew just six of his siblings, his parent had lost three daughters to ailment that could not be cured by any amount of home medications. When loja was nine he had a vision that changed his life. he was playing with his brother pablo outside of their grandpa’s home, when he had seen the image that appeared to be as the image of jesus in a light that struck from the sky into the ground the image which appeared to be floating and looking down on them wore a white tunic extended his arms forward and the pale hands of jesus were pierced and bleeding just like any other countless pictures of jesus loja had seen. Loja felt marveled and from that point on he felt special and protected by a divine force. Later on in Lojas life he became a star athlete,which made him have no doubt that God was illuminating a path for him.
I would always go to my boyfriend’s house instead. After my mother kicked me out, I dropped out of high school completely and moved in with my boyfriend. He’s 14 years older and he always supported me in whatever I did. He also gave me money whenever I needed it, and bought me everything I needed. He was the first man that ever made me feel loved.
I never caught a break. I contemplated suicide many times. I would have been completely fine with taking my own life, but how selfish would that have been of me? My family is the most important thing in the world to me, and I would never put them through something like that. I tolerated the bulling every day until one day, in my senior year, Dick didn't show up to school for a whole week.
My older brother is progressively becoming more of a violent and angry person; he was exposed to the domestic abuse of my mother but only until age 2 when I was born (when my mom finally ended the relationship). My younger brothers were not exposed to violence, but their father was never involved and he has never actually met my youngest brother (as he walked out on my mom when she was pregnant). Both my younger brothers seem to struggle with school. The older of the two seems to have a hard time controlling his emotions (specifically anger) yet the youngest seems to do fine with his emotions. I want to know why the absence of a father can be so impactful, what is it that they really have to offer a child during development that a mother cant or doesn’t usually provide?
I’ve always been well liked everyone at school idealized me. Football star of my time, everybody wanted to be me. My father was always a role model to me he was the perfect example of a salesman. My father always told me how well liked I was. He always thought I’d go far, but here I am unemployed going through dozens of jobs not sticking to any of them and back at home.
Images were racing wild through my mind as I thought about my teammates going to battle without me. I had played with some of these guys since we were in eighth grade, and when they needed me the most, all I could do is sit and cheer. I hated the feeling of helplessness, but at the same time I knew I had to do what little I could do, well. It was two days until the first game of my junior year in high school football season. My team and I were going to play St. Rita, a battle we had persistently prepared for since the last game of our sophmore year.
What I didn’t know was that the fact of how difficult it was going to be to overcome the feeling of being lonely, since he left me and my family. My older brother and I were always very close with our grandfather as we were growing up. We would do everything together. He was the first person who introduced us how to ride a bike, how to play chess, how to play basketball. He even got me my very own basketball hoop in my backyard for my birthday, but unfortunately as time flew by life took all this from us.
Literacy Narrative Readings I have always dreamed of having a job in the law field but going to school has been a struggle for me ever since I was younger. I was the type of child that always stayed to myself, also known as the loner. My grandparents raised me and they were always at work so I never got any help with any of the work I would struggle on. So as most children with parents like mine I did not do very well. I started to flunk high school and started hanging out with the wrong crowd.
