A song inspired by John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars
Life holds us back like a seat belt,
When we rather crash onto the freeway
And feel the concrete
On our skins
We are survivors,
Of a war within our walls,
Our hearts; ticking time bombs,
Decrementing along the lifeline
On our palms
The universe is vast
And our skies won’t last
There is one thing left to ask:
Will we make it fast?
I’ve come to terms with this
But you fear the black hole,
The big vortex
At the end of the road,
Engulfing all our stories
And memories you’ll never make
I, I don’t mind if we’re star-crossed,
Only beginning and we’ve already lost,
I’ll sweep the mines with you
As long as you say
Let’s cut all strings and ties
And re-discover life,
One meaning at a time
“Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them,” I said.
“Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.””
—The Fault In Our Stars
Life has been pretty chill now that it’s summer break already and I’m running out of things to do. I just finished reading The Hunger Games Trilogy so I figured, I could give in to the bookworm inside of me that I didn’t even knew existed. All I did today was read John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars. It’s not the ordinary teen romantic book that’s why I got so hooked. I’m learning a lot from the protagonists since almost all their conversations are not shallow and Augustus and Hazel like overthinking things, which is so much like me.
And today, I think I may have fallen in love with Augustus Waters. He’s so good with words just like Peeta from The Hunger Games trilogy, which made me realized that this characteristic is what I look for in a guy. Guys that you want to shut up whenever they speak because you don’t know how to contain all your emotions that you feel inside. Not to mention, their impossibly beautiful face. Ah, fine young men.
