Rocking Horse Winner By Lawrence
"The Rocking-Horse Winner" by D.H. Lawrence talks about a family who
lived in style, but always had anxiety in their house. There was never enough
money. The parents knew the children were growing up and they would need money
to send their children to school. The house came to be haunted with the phrase:

There must be more money! There must be more money! The children could here it
aloud but never dared to say it. The mother believed they were poor due to the
fact her husband had no luck. One day the boy asked his mother what luck really
was. She replied,"It's what causes you to have money. If you are lucky you
have money. That's why it it's better to be rich. If you're rich you may lose
your money. But if your lucky, you will always get more money." The boy
told his mother he had luck. The boy knew she did not beleive him and this
started the boy on his journey with the rocking horse. The rocking horse gave
luck, which is exactly what the boy, Paul, needed. Only Paul at first could hear
the real truth from his rocking horse. The rocking horse would tell Paul who the
winner of the race would be. Paul and his uncle Oscar used this information to
gamble on horss and were able to win piles of money. This money he gave
anomously to his mother to use for anything that was needed. it was one night
that Paul was riding his horse at full speed when suddenly a blaze of light hit
him up. He screamed, "Malabar!" Then he fell off with a crash that
would put him into unconsciousness; he never did recover from that fall. He died
later that night. Paul needed his rocking horse, without it he would never have
felt that luck. Luck gave him a sense of worth that wold help him to know that
he could succeed later in life. The rocking horse let him forget all his worries
and focus on the "winner". He loved to ride his rocking horse. Every
time he jumped on it was like the biggest race he would ever be in and gave it
his all. Paul died doing something he loved and this gives the audience closure
to a great story.
