"If this town / is just an apple / let me take a bite."  This line means that if something is just another opportunity, let me take advantage of the opportunity.  (Talia Esaw, class 804)

 

Within the song "Human Nature" by Michael Jackson, a metaphor is comparing two things without using like or as, when he says if this town is just an apple let me take a bite, he is referring to New York City.  I can infer he wants his part in the city.  He want his turn to do something in the city, to continue he wants his part.  (Janique Wilson, Class 804)

March 24, 2014, “Joy and Pain” by Maze and Frankie Beverly winners are:

Joy and pain is like sunshine and rain, being happy is like sunny day, being in pain is like rain. (Cessay Sissoho, Class 707)

Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain, represent happiness and sadness. (Joseph Dela Cruz, Class 605)

Joy and pain is like sunshine and rain.  This line means that joy is like happiness, because when the sun is out people are happy and joyful.  But, pain is like rain because most people are not happy when it comes to rain. (Talia Esaw, Class 804)

I think the joy of the pain means there’s always a bright side to every bad thing. (Ashley Ramos, Class 708)
