The poem The Red Son by Carl Sandburg is about motivation and what it can do to people Motivation is to be motivated by ways of inducement or incentive The poem conveys many aspects about motivation such as where motivation originates and how compelling it is how strong motivation can be and how motivation can change a persons life Motivation comes from within and can push someone into action whether they actually want to or not No one will do anything unless there is something pushing them from within to do it An example is the quote But a fire burns in my heart Under the ribs where pulses thud and flitting between bones of skull is the push the endless mysterious command where the man can feel inside him a strong motivation to leave home This man doesnt even want to really leave however and he knows everyone does not want him to go either but the motivation is still too great to deny A good quote is I go where you wist not of nor I nor any man nor woman I only know I go to storms grappling against things wet and naked where the man knows he should not leave but he also knows he has to One more good quote showing the man knows he has to leave is when he declares in the last line You for the little hills and I go away This motivation the man felt was very deep and very strong it took him away from everything he knew into a possible dangerous and scary future A person can be so motivated they will leave everything they know for something totally new The motivation the man felt took him from his comfortable life to an unknown new life The man was very comfortable and had a good life as seen in the quote I love your faces I saw the many years I drank
