    find one that sticks out from the others. I talked about ideally doing something that I am passionate about, something that keeps me motivated and interested when the days get long.

    increase their chances of abusing a drug. I guess you can say that people normally abuse drugs because they’re either down, or vulnerable. This makes me believe why people decide to consistently abuse drugs. Also I believe that “Other people, however, enjoy having boundless energy and being "on" all the time. Or, they may live such busy lives that they need an extra boost (or at least they think they do). Rather than prioritize their time so that they can get enough sleep, eat properly, and do…

    Compare how the consequences of a conflict are shown in Mametz Wood and one other poem from ‘Conflict’. In both Mametz Wood and Poppies, the poets manage to show the consequences of conflict in both similar, and different, ways.
