Emma's Poetry Corner

Hey guys! My name is Emma and I'm a friend of Sasha's who writes poetry. I'm going to be posting here about once a week. I'll post poetry about books, movies, or sometimes just random things that I write! For this week, here's something that I wrote about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Enjoy and leave comments about what you think! 

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars
but in ourselves.”
That’s what Shakespeare said.
But what did he mean? That it’s all your fault?
I blame the stars for taking you away.
We were both damaged with no hope
but somehow, you managed
to give me a forever within numbered days.
I blame the stars for taking you away,
But I also thank them for giving me
and all the time we had
our little infinity.


  1. That was great! It sums up the story perfectly! Keep up the good work!
