These 10 poems are written on the theme of ” my growth in English “. I depicted a story from the story of a junior high school student when I got to touch English firmly till the present of a college student whose English became familiar. I moved from a world with little English to a world surrounded by English. I have had various experiences since I met English. In this time I wrote such memories of English and me in poetry, but from there various things came to be seen.
First, I felt “any event in my life is impressive”. My memories recorded to this poetry collection. This memories is from my turning point such as entrance examination, beginning of living by myself, etc to my trivial event such as story of my hobby. I could make any scene a story of an impressive poem. I think that this is not my power is strong, because “I draw the scene in poetry”. This does not mean that my strength is strong. “Because I express the scene with poetry” I think. Big events for me for example, entrance examinations and the beginning of new life, become impressive in whatever form. However, watching your own hobbies and trivial events of daily life from a unique point of view, and passing poetic expressions will naturally create impressive scenes.
Second, I think that “any scene in my life will be my strength”. By watching overseas movies, I was able to nurture my creativity while learning English. New life gave me a stimulation to my action power and let me learn the sense of the mission of living by myself. I learn from any trivial things and I feel that all the events are making me right now.
Finally, I could rethink my own behavior through these poems. It is said that poetic expressions can remind readers of my thoughts and memories or superimpose it on the memories of readers. I felt I was watching that from the perspective of a third party by seeing my memory through poetic expressions.
Conclusion of me with English
English and my involvement are included in all verses as an indispensable element of this poem. It is no exaggeration to say that English has changed my life. Now I am enrolled in Gunma University. I have increased interaction with people. This is all thanks to my study of English. And English is effective even after graduating from university in the future. English is just the second language I have learned for the first time. I thought that I could get Insight that could not be obtained with Japanese learning alone through English learning. I felt a certain happiness in English learning. That is to learn the importance of effort. I was able to realize that I can overcome my weakness. I had never done such a great experience so far, so I was able to create self-confidence from that.
Since I met English now like this, I think if I will grow up with English for a while. I want to live while feeling the importance of learning English from now on.
