An Acrostic Poem

In the YA Buddy Readers' Corner group on Goodreads, they had a challenge this month to write an acrostic poem using the title of a book we have read with a minimum of 12 letters. What is an acrostic poem? you may ask. I will try and tell you:) It is a poem written about any subject, and you put the subject down the side of the page to use those letters as the first word of that line of your poem. So I decided to write mine on one of my favorite books that I have mentioned before. I chose The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay, and here it what I wrote:

Taken away
Everything SHATTERED. Now
Silence. An
End to music.

A Boy with no
One left.

Fragile. He may be
The hope I need while
Running from my past.

A chair.
Now Belonging.
Quiet Acceptance.
Until the past returns.

I wanted revenge.
Let go instead.
I forgave.
Then I finally healed.

You gave me a better story.

The Sea of Tranquility is a mature YA contemporary. You can check it out here.



  1. Omg, Sara! I LOVE your poem! The Sea of Tranquility is one of my favourite books as well, and I love how you've put down the essence of the story here! It's seriously good!
    Cheers! xD
