la la


Not much of a 'template', but it displays the numbers of syllables.


First I had:


broken hopes
shattered dreams
we feel frustrated

our land

our lives

are devastated


But when I listened to the music again I found that the stress in the third line lies on the last syllable. I didn't care much for "frustrated" anyway. Now I have:


broken hearts
shattered dreams
till we lose all hope
no-one cares
no-one there
to toss a rescue rope


There is neither a story nor much imagery - with the exception of the rope. But then, there are not too may words to squeeze a story in. But maybe an image. I've got to write another verse anyway, so maybe I'll make this one the second verse should I come up with a strong image. It's always good to 'draw people in' with the first verse.
