I still don't get this poem.And my English teacher wants us to do an
assignment in which we establish a controlling idea about lessons
learned.And we're supposed to apply it to both "A Stone is Nobody's" and an
excerpt from When Heaven and Earth Changed Places.I need to understand this
stupid poem to make a controlling idea.Please help,this is due tomorrow!

Wait,how did the mother let her son capture her?I thought all he cared
about was that stupid rock.

no the last line does not say that the son never belonged to the mother.
the poem is about how the son captured the rock and spent all his life
guarding thiscaptured rock... so in reality the stone captured him. and the
last line says the mother could never love her son because she had let him
capture her. basically if you imprison something you will eventually become
the prisoner.

Wow, I am impressed that this was on the Regents. Would that be the New
York State Regents because the last I heard, only New York and Ca. had them
and boy, I can tell. This poem reminds me a lot of some of Stephen Crane's
