Also, in his poems, Whitman uses transcendental thoughts and moving word choices to bring a sense of motivation for his readers aswell.

In my past, while I was a lone gull, I was what you would call a typical seagull; savage, ruthless, and selfish. However, now I have chosen to disconnect myself from that identity and I think avoiding situations that could encourage that behaviour is a good idea. Hours go by and lunch time finally rolls around.
