I thought that the talk about the song was like a persons meaning of life. When a person finds their song, it's like finding the meaning of your life.

Ashley H said...

"Song of my own" means that you're finding yourself and making your own way. It's something that you understand and created for yourself. It's your own path that you can follow because you know where it will lead you and you allow yourself to trust.

I think it means that you find the reason why you are living. People live, but they don't know what they were ment to do. Your song lets you know that you have fufilled your meaning.

Ashley Moore said...

Song of my own, in my opinion, means that one has complete control over his or her life. They don’t follow society, instead they set their own goals and find what they believe is the purpose of their own life.

Nakia said...

I agree with Ariel. I think the song is talking about finding your own purpose and meaning within your life.

I agree with Ashley H in her interpretation of "song of my own". Its kinda the same thing as "beat to your own drum"

I agree with Ashley Moore and her statement. I believe "song of my own" means that you as a person finds your own way, or depend upon yourself to do things. You're a more independent person, and you dont rely on others to make decesions for you.

Adija Brown said...

I agree With Both Keshon's and Ashley M's opinions. I believe that a "Song of My Own" expresses how you want to live your life on your own. However, I also believe that a "Song of My Own" is also how others view and judge you as a person.

T. Moore said...

In regards to the "Song of my own" I agree with Buschbacer and A. Hammons when they said that it was like the person's meaning of life. I agree because it's like when you realize that you have finally found your "song" you finally was able to find and accept you as a person. Its like you have grown into something more mature than you are now.

I believe that "song of my own" is your own personal interpretation of life and its meaning. People have their own aspirations and goals in life, and people feel that the only way to accomplish them is to identify who they are.I agree with Ariel Preston because God put everybody on the earth for a reason, and I believe that it is up to us to find out what our purpose is in life. Everybody has their own song, and every song is uniquely designed to fit their own personality.

Ashley H said...

I agree with Ms. Preston. Her interpretation went along with mine in the idea of finding your own way. The only part I don't really agree with is when she said that the song lets you know that you have fulfilled your meaning. I think the song is more geared towards the direction that you may take with your life.

Kevin Bennett said...

I agree with Ashley Hammons on the "Song of My Own" because to be able to find you're song you have to be able to understand and truly know you're self. you must be able to trust your self and decisions.

Alexandria Adams said...

When saying, "song of my own" I believe that this means that one has complete responsibilty of what they are doing and no one can change your views or beliefs of a certain issue. this is true because in the end its your own.( Your song is your life and what defines you.)

Tierra LaSha said...

I agree with Ashley H. At first I had a very fuzzy understanding about what "Song of my own" meant. It is clearer now. That does make a lot of sense. I also understand the meaning better by remembering who said it. The quote is greatly linked to Bynum becuase he is very different from many of the other people in the play. He is wierd to most. This is becasue he does things the way he wants. The does not follow the rules of everyone else. This can be compared to A Road Less Traveled.

Benjamin said...

I agree with Ashley H's interpretation. Finding your own way and being happy with your own choice although others may not understand is "song of my own.". Bynum himself does this, as he does magic and many people think he is crazy;however, he is content in his soul.

I agree with Buschbacher on it meaning its when a person finding their own meaning of their life. Everyone has different songs meaning different ways that they will take in their lives.

Ashley Rogers said...

I agree with Buschbacher. I think its finding the meaning of your life, your purpose or path, and more importantly, finding out who you are as a person.

Kris said...

"Song of my own" is a persons outlook on his/her purpose in life is.

I agree with Ashley H when she refers to a "song of my own" as a way of finding one's self and determining one's destiny. I believe it's more mature for a person to know themselves as an individual and find his/her own way in life rather than just following other's path.

Christina Wallace said...

I think that a song of one’s own refers to moving to the beat of their own drums. As citizens, we must confide and mold to societal norms. Otherwise, one is considered an outcast. Also, I interpret it to mean that he has found himself. He now knows what he wants to do with his life and is not stopping to continue to follow his song/ rhythm of the path that he is now leading for himself.
