The poem of My Papas Waltz reminded me of my own life. My father at times comes home completely drunk to the point he can't remember what happened that night or what he did. It reminded me personally of my dad wanting to get my mom to dance with him even though he hates the fact of dancing but while drunk he doesn't even question it. I am looking at this poem from the child's point of view because I see it as though that child was me because it hurts them to see their dad acting that way. It was really well worth reading because it was as though i was reading what my life is really like. The lines that really struck me also were when the child was saying his ear was getting hurt by the buckles on his dads belt and then he got carried away to sleep. It's as though the dad didn't meant to hurt him but did try to comfort him to take him to sleep. I do think that if someone were to see it from the dads perspective they may say that he must have a lot of problems and is trying to cope with them as well.
