Responding to “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green

Found Poem: The Fault in our Stars

their lives lit up,
loved, and hopeful,
powerful,
look at the person who loves you,
and smile
you think you are on,
on a roller coaster
that only goes
up

live powerful, loved
but someday, you look up
and cry
nothing,
nothing but a sadness.

still,
live your best,
best life today,
and go,
all the way
up

“The Fault in our Stars” is a book about a girl named Hazel with lung cancer. She was giving up on life when he meets a boy named Augustus. They meet at Cancer Support Group, and eventually start dating. I think this book’s message is how relationship is important to our lives, even when facing death. I showed this message by first writing about life, then death, and adding things about love in the middle, like sprinkles to the poem.

  1. I learnt the whole point or the aim of the book you are reading, where its to be hopeful. The poem you wrote gave the reader a general outline whats the story is gonna be about, you did well where you were able to pick important words from the pages to put in to poem. I think how you wrote the poem is interesting where you just focused on one aspect which is to look up, you played around with the word around it and i think it was nicely organised 🙂

  2. I have read the book and watched the movie as many people have, the poem gives a good point and is a very nice and clear poem but it doesn’t spoil anything. i really like how some of your lines it is a few words or just one I really enjoyed that.
