This poem is very powerful in a sense that the character is finally telling everyone what she wants. It’s kind of choppy but still dominant. She shows that she’s doesn’t want to be controlled by anyone anymore. She wants to be her own person, make her own decisions like when she says “let me find my talk/so I can teach you about me”. The teachers that are telling her who to be and how to think use a very strong hand to get the students to do what they want. Rita is trying to use a kind hand to show everyone that she wants to be her own person, which I think is making an even bigger statement then going about it any other way. She wants to show the teachers how great of a person she is without them and without their control. Rita showed everyone what she wanted in a great way.
