Life Gets Ugly

Life Gets Ugly

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

Lyrics I wrote for a power ballad

"

 

Born into this world

With a father burnt out

And a mother wasting away.

Life was over

Before her first birthday

Till the state stepped in

As a saving grace.

The strange lady sang

As she took her away.

 

 

Life is a blessing

Interrupted by curses.

It may be ugly now

But that’s what brings

The beauty out.

 

Such a charming couple

Full of love, unable to conceive.

Praying every night

For a child in their lives.

Bliss burned in their eyes

When the call came

That a miracle had arrived.

The angel lady sang

Before handing the girl away.

 

Life is a blessing

Interrupted by curses.

It may be ugly now

But that’s what brings

The beauty out.

 

Years went buy

Happiness remained.

A complete family

Like she was their own,

they were all she’d known.

 

The headlines read

“Blaze leaves family in dire straights”

Reporters on the scene

As the community arrives

To rebuild their dream

The news anchor begins to sing

A song she mysteriously

Knows by heart.

 

Life is a blessing

Interrupted by curses.

It may be ugly now

But that’s what brings

The beauty out.

I love the chorus on this piece. I think no wiser words have ever been written. You have good and bad the tragedy's are there. I think in life we have choices in what we view is what makes or breaks us. This was a very beautiful song.

As all in life has it's balance, in good and bad... very inspiring write Dale. The truthful note in it is a sign for many, the repeating aspects in your writing, make it poignant, and real. One to never forget!

Inspired lyrics, Dale .. the initial sadnessthen joy then pain is extraordinarily moving .. the softness of your phrases hold the meanings but then, stops them for becoming overly fussy or insincere ..

Great chorus .. it's like a moral in music .. worth remembering.

Powerful and uplifting anthem.... You know that life is difficult at times, but there is such a beauty and blessing that can be found by those who cling to hope and love. Amazing song!

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
