The metacognition reflection concerning the videos gives an outlook of what we should be ready for and what we are experiencing. It shows that challenges are there and need to be overcome, as demonstrated in the Poetry Found/tonight, which also indicates that every person has time to be successful and write one’s history (Miranda & Platt, 2018). Today’s challenges endurance is a sign of hope to the rising generation. Here I would express my feelings, that is, feeling timid and distressed, impressed, and a sense of self-belief because listening to all songs gives e a sense of hope and self-belief. I think this is a good use of poetry and drama as a way of expression.
Alison starts the presentation about how she and her dad were gay (Awards 2015). Surprisingly, Alison did not know until she saw a woman walking in, and she explained that she had not seen a woman such beautiful. The first view of the woman Alison sees here is very much attractive. Alison explains in her song how she dressed and the beautiful outlook. Her father is also gay because the woman’s appearance does not attract him; he concentrates on his magazine; additionally, he tells Alison to fix her hair and look like a boy. When I listened to Alison, I felt timid and distressed, as if I am a person denied what I deserve. I also feel impressed by the way she describes the delivery woman. However, there is fear of her being accepted as per her feelings. Concerning the feminism journal, in the second wave of feminism, women are seen to campaign for the general allowance of lesbianism as a way of being free, thus bringing the sense of freedom that conquers with the reflection. And fights the feeling of fear.

Listening to this song makes me feel reborn and energized. It makes me feel the importance of women and a new strength at low expectations. A sense of self-belief is created in me. In her piece, the elements of women being incorporated and considered are seen in the third wave of feminism where Rebecca wanted a balance for all women and gain freedom and bring change, which is celebrated today,
Lin-Manual Miranda & Ben Platt found song is a song that focuses on having the freedom to make one’s legacy known (Miranda & Platt, 2018). The song indicates that change may not be immediate, but it will eventually come. The singing of the line “Have you ever felt forgotten…”makes me have a feeling of fear. Additionally, the continuation makes me feel hope, joy, and happiness. It gives me a sense of energy and belief that I can still make it even when least expected to. It complements the journals, which have helped me understand how gendered communication is achieved. In conclusion, the reflection clearly shows how gender communication is well brought out from the biological formation and disparities such as hormonal imbalance to being listened to by the other societies and the feelings experienced, their effects, and the growth as such communication.
