In the poem 'Dedication,' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, tells the story of dedication while 'traveling the sea.' I can't connect to a literal level but, when we go deeper into the poem we reveal more of the task. Dedication to get to a goal or, in the poems case the 'land,' there is going to be things we experience throughout the way. Yet, we focus on our goal therefore we are dedicated. I am a very dedicated person when it comes to school, sports and things I love.
