    because rosie is destroyed so now she feels better. 'i stand up through your destruction'

    What do you think?

    I would be happier with D if it said "thinks she will not fall away into drugs and helplessness as miss rosie did"

    so what do you guys think
    now i'm thining on C too

  • english.poem, Miss Rosie -

    We don't all interpret a poem the same way. Go with your own gut feeling.

  • english.poem, Miss Rosie -

    Amen.

    still, do you have any opinions Ms.Sue?
    :)

  • english.poem, Miss Rosie -

    No, I don't have an opinion. I could throw a dart at both answers, and see where the dart landed. But I don't know what the poet intended in those last three lines.

    The important thing is that you've thought through this poem and tried to interpret it. Your actual answer really isn't very important.

    It's C
