    • Dear Douglas: 

      I am moved by your poem “Running Up A Mountain” because of the similarities we both share. I too have parents who put me in a position to become successful. My parents as well as yours understand what hard work really means and why we should take advantage of the opportunities presented to us. 

      One sentence that stands out to me is: “I am from running up a mountain to achieve goals and expectations.” I think this is motivational because it shows that you want to become better and I do my best in surrounding myself with people with the same motives. I too am always striving to become a better version of myself. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because of the similarities we share. I would also like for you to share a long-term goal of yours.

Running Up A Mountain

I Remember

“Nocturne” by Louise Gluck, Read by Douglas




literary element

i never really been there and this is kind of getting to go and i might do what he does but im gonna be more safe

i dont get a poets salsa but i can imagina a regular salsa and him being barefoot so i would wonder how much different is a poets salsa then a regular salsa

she has to work or she wont have much money and she needs the money for the family and the baby

i agree i wish all of this never happened to tish and fonny

this is a great moment but also a sad moment becuase they cant do this anymore because fonny is in jail

Fonny is having a lot of trouble in jail and he is trying to get help to get out of hell(prison)

no one should feel this scared in a public area where a lot of people can see

i agree and i think that hating or loving will make you pay more attention to someone and indifference makes people think that the more different you are then you will act a different way.

this is kind of sad and this just keeps bringing up the point that fonny is getting mistreated and this is unfair.

fonny is getting scared because he thinks that tish is going to get taken or love someone else. this is kind of nice because it shows how much fonny really loves tish

if only this was the love that fonny's family would give to tish. this is kind of unfair because tish's family treats fonny well and fonny's mother and sisters are just treating tish horribly

i feel like there was no reson for fonny to think that “Mr.Rivers” would get mad becasue this isnt a bad thing for anyone.

this is just showing how much Tish really means to Fonny and how much he likes her instead of any other people.

this is a flashback and they didnt know about the baby yet. I guess it could be better now that tish has a baby

im very glad that they are only caring about their opinions on this relationship.

this is so sad but great at the same time. the good thing is that she is trying to keep her baby and herself healthy.

honestly i think that they deserve this type of treatment becasue they are being so rude to their own family and rude towards tishs baby.

she doesnt have to say this kind of stuff to her own brother this is just messed up.

why does she think she should be controlling everything when this is not her baby. this is her grandchild but she does not even care about the baby.

this is kind of messed up how mrs.hunt think this should be a leson for fonny when he would not do anything wrong

maybe the title of the book could be about something in new chapters or something about the background of this book.

She deserved all of that since she is basically trying to get rid of her grandchild

I think that the father could of done something like get toys or be with the other sister more and that probably made tish think the father loved the other sister more
