The students from MARC prepared this creative Poetry response to Worse Things by Aaron, Anna, Archie, Arlo, Baden, Bailey, Barney, Bonnie, Kelanee, Poppy and Sophie. Worse Things is nominated in the Younger Reader category in the Book of the Year Awards.
Taking the titles of some of the Worse Things poems they decided to make acrostic poems for each word. Each of them focused on one word and they helped each other with finding those tricky letters and on giving feedback.
Death will always come at your last breath
Eternal darkness will swallow your vision
A wave of stinging pain will be all you know
The end is unescapable
Heartbroken past will fade before your eyes
On the track
Abandoned by everyone
Only person I know is me
Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
Take notice of
Have one eye open
