    This poem is one of the most impactful parts of the novel, and I do think it should have been included in this movie. However, I do not like this particular scene, and I'm glad they cut it. It feels wrong.

    Charlie reminds me Clay from 13 Reasons Why.
    And Clay reminds me Charlie too. Similar social awkwardnesses, mental states, being alone, losing the ones they loved in very similar ways etc. Even their looks are similar. I don't know maybe I overthink about 2 different individual things but what I know for sure is that I'm terribly sorry for both of them and I wanna hug them tightly forever. They deserve to be loved.

    There should be a deleted scene of Charlie confronting that blond girl that sits next to him in his class that every time he did something, she would criticize him! I would of loved a scene where he just told her off.

    even though I love this poem and this scene, i see why it got cut. It doesn't really have the same effect, because when you read it, it's personal and private, but in this scene it's like a depiction of how the poem should be read and it kinda takes out the magic and emotion you feel when you first read the poem.

    No offence, I love this movie, but haven't got the chance to read the book yet, but can someone explain what does this scene actually meant?

    This and the brother and sister scenes are the only ones that I think should have been added into the movie

    Once on a yellow peice of paper with green lines
    he wrote a poem
    and he called it "chops"
    because that was the name of his dog
    and that's what it was all about and his teacher gave him an A
    and a gold star
    and his mother hung it on the kitchen door
    and read it to his aunts
    that was the year Father Tracy took all the kids to the zoo and he let them sing on the bus and his little sister was born
    with tiny toe nails and no hair and his mother and father kissed alot
    and the girl around the corner sent him a
    Valentine signed with a row of X's and he had to ask his father what the X's meant and his father always tucked him in bed at night and was always there to do it

    Once on a piece of white paper with blue lines
    he wrote a poem and he called it "Autumn" because that was the name of the season
    and that's what it was all about and his teacher gave him an A
    and asked him to write more clearly
    and his mother never hung it on the kitchen door because of its new paint and the kids told him that Father Tracy smoked cigars
    and left butts on the pews and sometime they would burn holes
    that was the year his sister got glasses with thick lenses and black frames and the girl around the corner laughed when he asked her to go see Santa Claus and the kids told him why his mother and father kissed a lot and his father never tucked him in bed at night and his father got mad when he cried for him to do it

    Once on a paper torn from his notebook
    he wrote a poem
    and he called it "Innocence: A Question"
    because that was the question about his girl
    and thats what it was all about
    and his professor gave him an A
    and a strange steady look
    and his mother never hung it on the kitchen door
    because he never showed her
    that was the year Father Tracy died
    and he forgot how the end
    of the Apostles's Creed went
    and he caught his sister
    making out on the back porch
    and his mother and father never kissed
    or even talked
    and the girl around the corner
    wore too much make up
    that made him cough when he kissed her
    but he kissed her anyway
    becuase it was the thing to do
    and at 3 am he tucked himself into bed
    his father snoring soundly

    that's why on the back of a brown paper bag
    he tried another poem
    and he called it "Absolutely Nothing"
    because that's what it was really all about
    and he gave himself an A
    and a slash on each damned wrist
    and he hung it on the bathroom door
    because this time he didnt think
    he could reach the kitchen

    I was in the hospital for a while for attempted suicide and when I was there all the doctors wrote on pieces of yellow paper with green lines. It made me think of the poem the whole time. When I left, a nurse asked me if I needed anything. I said "a piece of your yellow paper" She gave me a strange, steady look, before presenting me with one of my very own yellow pieces of paper with green lines. I took it home and I wrote out the poem, the first stanza on that yellow sheet, the second on a white sheet with blue lines, the third on a crumpled piece I tore from my notebook and the fourth, of course, on a paper bag. I keep it with me and whenever I have bad thoughts I read it and it reminds me not to end up like The Boy in the poem. It keeps me grounded, safe and alive.

    I loved Logan as Charlie but honestly I didn't like the way he delivered the poem in this scene. I'm OK with it being cut purely for how he delivered it. If it was done differently I would've been more upset (don't get me wrong I'm still upset that it's not in the movie) that it didn't make the final cut.

    This would have been the most significant scene within the movie in my opinion.. Perhaps this scene was cut out due it's seriousness and the fact that it can be seen as disturbing. Though, the whole movie is focused around abuse so I'm questioning why this scene was cut out. Would have made the movie 10x better. This scene is amazing.

    Once on the notepad of a computer she wrote a poem.
    She called it beauty, because she was alone and it was dark.
    and that was the question of the hour

    And the hour ticked by and the paper remained blank
    that year she went to the library at lunch
    because all the tables were full and the library was quite.
    The kids placed an x on her back and her eyes drooped
    like her posture.

    Once she tried again this time she called it beauty: A statement
    because she was told there was no middle ground.
    That year the library closed, and the tables were full
    So she stopped eating ans stood in the corner.
    And she placed an X on her own back
    then pulled her selves down.

    And that's why she tried one last time on her skin
    She called it absolutely nothing because that's what beauty really was
    and she dug her pencil in harder with each letter
    That was the year she put a gun to her head
    and didn't bother placing the X on her back
    because she believed her coffee would be just as quite as the library.

    I once tried what I likr to call progressive poetry for one of my wattpad books and it went like this:

    When she was seven
    She pointed at the night sky
    Asking mommy
    What the shinning dots were.
    Mommy smiled and said
    That they were bright stars
    Just like her little sweetheart.
    She went home that same night
    And watched through her window
    All the little shinning dots above
    With awe in her little eyes.

    When she was ten
    She pointed at the night sky
    Asking mommy
    Why the stars disappeared
    Every morning.
    Mommy smiled and said
    That the stars are always there
    Just like she was for her sweetheart.
    She went home that same night
    And watched through her window
    If the stars would always be there
    Or if they'd disappear again.

    When she was sixteen
    She looked up at the night sky
    Wishing mommy
    Was back from the hospital.
    Mommy had lung cancer
    But said she was feeling great
    Just like she wanted her
    Sweetheart to feel
    She went home that same night
    And watched through her window
    The stars blurred by her tears
    And wished for a healing.

    When she was nineteen
    She looked up at the night sky
    Missing mommy
    Who had left the hospital.
    Mommy never came back home
    And had lost a fight
    Just like her sweetheart
    had lost her.
    When she went home that night
    She slammed her window shut
    For her heart had shattered into
    A billion Stars that
    she could not wish upon.

    What pisses me off about this movie is that I would've been fine with a longer film THE DIRECTOR decided to cut out a shotton of scenes and because of that THE FILM MADE NO SENSE. I was like wtf is happening. All these scenes he cut were originally there for a reason. The film has so much more meaning with all the little parts and pieces DAMN THAT'S LIKE THE PURPOSE OF THE FILM.
