The meaning of Me Against the world: When you are lonely,it feels like the words tries to prevent you from being happy and doing what you want to do. This is the initial point of the text and it would have been better to have put this phrase at the beginning of text .

My poem shows an example of meaning in talking about life too.

Imagery
Imagery is the name given to the elements in a poem that spark off the senses. Despite "image" being a synonym for "picture", images need not be only visual; any of the five senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell) can respond to what a poet writes.



    

THEME AND MEANING

The Overall meaning of the song is said in the title,it is literally him against the world. In the song Tupac addresses sources of injustice in our society by pointing out that the people who often ask questions are the ones being punished .Shown in lines four and five verse three.

Literacy Devices  

One literacy device being used in the song is repetition. You can see repetition being used in the chorus as he repeats these lines multiple time ? its just me against the world Baby and I got nutting to lose  to lose  Its just me against the world.

Another device that is used is imagery .You can see imagery throughout most of the song .A few lines that show imagery are: The project is full of bullets,the bodies is dropping ''Maybe he'll listen in his casket ''

The aftermath more bodies being buried. I'm losing my homies in a hurry they're relocating to the cemetary.
