Found Poem

April 22nd, 2014

Here is my example of a Found poem.  This came from an article in Time magazine.  I can’t find the article, but you need to make sure for your own examples that you write down the magazine, article title, & author of the original article.

Remember– I did NOT add any words of my own.  I simply cut out words and rearranged to create the following poem.

 

“Hope isn’t easy”

 

Overweight.

Tired of being fat.

 

Diets

never make a difference.

 

Husky.

Big-boned.

By age 16, undeniably

obese.

Each year, only getting worse,

abysmal.

Chicken strips and fries

McDonald’s

Soda

Potato chips

Little Debbie cakes.

Never exercise.

Out of breath.

Upset.

Mentally—physically

I couldn’t.

 

Hope isn’t easy.

I needed help.

A long term remedy.

 

No easy answers.

Alone.

 

But hardly alone.
