Topic: Poem: Wretched Lives - maybe a song somehow ?
I thought I'd try writing something that might go into punk, gothic, heavy metal or something like that. (probably b/c Phill told me I was too "mushy " in my last song )
But since I have no clue to how the music of that genre is written - I'll leave to some one else.
(maybe a hint to Beamer or someone ? )
I don't know - but it was kid of fun writing it.
any comments or ideas to improve it would be appreciated
Not a demon to expose your flaws
Nor a savage beast with bloody claws
only your worst fears, fallen into place
when you've lost it all and life’s a waste
gripped by the loneliness of a silent curse
constant reminders , make things worse
when you don't believe it, but yet you know
there’s no one to hold and nowhere to go
such is the fate of those with wretched lives
hopelessly waiting for their ships to arrive
too scared to be bold, and face the cruel facts
and haunted by visions of what their lives lack
Hurry to nowhere, like the aimless winds blows
In search of comfort that someone else knows
every hour that passes, and faith slips away
Dreading the darkness , which brings a new day
Make your life count, and the world will be a better place because you tried.
