Gabbie Hanna's poetry is unbelievably bad...

27 134
Today we take a look at Gabbie Hanna's awful poetry, the true monster that's been here all along. Her book "Adultolescence" is quite possibly one of the worst pieces of literature that I have ever read.

Ok, I kinda smirked at the O-Positive one. But that's not fair! I'm not a 14-year-old virgin!
...I'm 15.

To be fair, it shouldn't be considered a poem, maybe, MAYBE a pick-up line. I'm still ashamed.

She read egghead once and thought “yeah I can do this too, it’s not like bo burnham makes an entire career out of this and I’m just doing this all in one sitting without any nuance or irony”

I'm thirteen, and I thoroughly enjoy poems and stories. I write poetry too, and eagerly hope to publish a book. I don't really know how good or how bad my poems are, but I just wish for constructive critiques, so that I can be better. Gabbie Hanna's poems make me want to stop writing.

These aren't poems. These are like...fortune cookie sayings. Wtf? XD
These would've worked better as just little comical illustrations or something, even. I mean, that's essentially what they are. But I guess that's beneath her or something?

Unpopular opinion, you can't get mad at her for her success. Her writing skills are minimal, but money doesn't care about talent

True. All you need are a bunch off emo and edgy 12 year old fans and you can make a quick buck, no matter what garbage you sell them.

ever noticed that 'synonym' doesnt have a synonym?
there is literally nothing deep, meaningful, or interesting about that.
same with 'when i was young, my mother used to touch iron to see if it was hot'
she even *admits* that she doesnt find that deep with 'i dont know, but i feel like theres a metaphor in there somewhere'
probably what she told the publishers when they asked about it

I hate how she makes jokes about suicide. People actually have to deal with those problems and it's so hard. You can tell she doesn't actually want to die she's just trying to be 'quirky'

"when i was little i was the only person who couldn't do a cartwheel bc i was 2 scared so i tried & tried & guess wut i still cant do a cartwheel but i gave it my best shot & it's ok to fail long as u try" This is, word for word, an entire page in her shitty poetry. When "Link In Bio" is an entire page that is the embodiment of im14andthisisdeep, this poetry is dogshit.

Guys, I’ve just looked at the Amazon page of this book...people rated it 5 stars.
Someone says it was their favorite book ever, another person said it “was so relatable, so good”. I stopped reading the comments at this point because all I want to do now is gauge my eyes out.
The “best. book. ever” like HAVE YOU NEVER OPENED AN ACTUAL BOOK BEFORE ? 😭😭, how can people be so dumb and spend 16 euros (not cheap either cause I love money right) on this booook.

She should be ashamed of herself. Really, she knows what she is doing, selling true shit, only to make more money. Either she has spent a lot of time on this « book », and she is incredibly stupid, or she has spent 5 minutes writing this book, and she is also stupid but also a big hypocrite. I really, really do not like this, because I know so many authors who are talented and really do the work, but can’t get their books published.

I've been trying to find actual poetry on YouTube but all the stuff that comes up is crap! People overacting, whining about their "feeeelings," brainless diary entries masquerading as poetry. “But it’s so honest!” Yeah, honestly bad. Where's the craft? Where's the discipline? Where can I find real art and talent to put on The PoJo Show?!

But what happened here
Just felt badly done
As someone who
Can't write for shit
The poems here
Made me cry a bit
I watched talent die
And it's blood pour out
A scarring experience
As bad as rotten trout
The whole concept of this book
Has just made me sad
And that's coming from me

I love literature and always have. I have some childrens poem books my mom bought me when I was a child and it still amazes me how mutch creativity there is in them and I still time to time read those books... But this... I just try to understand, but I cant. I cant see anything creative or orginal In this book and I am just gringing so bad. I truely hate it... Exept the pictures. I kinda like those, but the poetry side is fucking awful...

Youth, naive in it's complexity
Futile in it's lies
Bug eyed in it's plea
Lies in it's intelligence.
repetitive in it's mistakes
As time progresses
Told the needless ways of care
The crumbling of foolish innocence
That falls down pigtailed hair
Redemption round the corner
A ring no end is seen
The maturing of the seasons
The browning of the green
In it's language, so obscene
Till finally the end
naive so disingenuous
Bug to sceptic
Repeat no more
but lies still thaw
never to disappear completely
human nature is so cheeky
