Analysis Too Far Gone Often times one might find themselves in a state of confusion within the society. We prioritize the wrong things in life and take for granted the little things. This minimizes our chances for clarity, leaving us more susceptible to a constant state of bewilderment. “Confusion” a poem by Mrs. Janét R Griffin speaks on how society has lost focus on what is important. We are confused when we believe in materials. We live in a materialistic society where the majority of people are more worried about what we have than who we are. There is an importance in what type of clothes you are wearing, what kind of car you are driving, and just the amount of things you have over-all. For example, in line one through five it says, “When we begin to mistake appearance for substance, We miss the essence of life and except the trash. We become confused.” We associate money with happiness and a fulfilling life. Materials things are not all that matter in life and do not insure an excellent life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
