Sentence 2

Her sentence: "I do my best, thinking of them one by one, releasing them like birds from the protective cages inside me, locking the doors against their return."

From Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Her use of parallel phrases chronicle the mental steps Katniss takes to get past the agony of leaving her family and dear friends.

My sentence: I storm away, blocking their petty screams out of my memory, sealing my eardrums against the inevitable attacks, vowing to forget them and rise above the filth of their incessant squabbles.
