Their eyes were watching god
Zora Neale Horston's short story teaches people that you dont always get what you see. People may look all dignified but really deep on the inside they may as wild and rugged as a bucking bronco. You have to accept them for the way they are even if they dont do everything you approve of. People are going to follow their hearts regardless of what the town is going to say. Like Janice and Tea Cake, even though people talked about them like they were crazy, they still went off and enjoyed their new life together. Janice was always known as Mrs. Mayor Starks but really she was a free spirit that needed to be let go. Noisy people of the town were not going to hold her back from her real love that she had found with tea Cake.
