This Ain't Over Part 1

This Ain't Over Part 1

A Poem by Undying Glory

A song about being voted out of a talent show like American Idol. To be sung by the contestant who was just voted out...


This Ain’t Over Part 1


So this is where the story ends

In front of millions of cheering fans

And while the others are happy, it’s not the same for me


Well now my chance has come and gone

And it’s never good when you know you’ve wasted it all

And now the nation has spoken

And it’s now the end of my dreams


But I’m never gonna just lay down and die

I’m gonna spread my wings

And show them I can fly

‘Cos this time I won’t make the same mistakes

And to succeed I’m gonna do whatever it takes


‘Cos this ain’t over

‘Cos I’ll make sure that I’ll get it right

Now I’ve seen the light

‘Cos this ain’t over

Give me a second chance

To make it all up

And to bury the past

Yeah this ain’t over

When you think it’s all finished and gone

You’ll find the strength to carry on

P.S. The "second chance" mentioned just means a second chance to make it big, and not to avoid being voted out. Just to avoid confusion...

While the subject matter isn't the best for poetry, you pulled it off well. Nicely done.

well've captured the emotions of someone going through this very well. You're colloquial style isn't usually something I'd go for, but it works well here.

First off I love American Idol and I think this captures the emotions of every contestant that doesn't make it. I like the last lines:
"When you think it’s all finished and gone
You’ll find the strength to carry on"
It's uplifting and leaves you with hope. Nicely done.
