It All Works Out In The Movies - Poem by Charlie F. Kane
You know the sort of movie
With the string filled music
And the tear filled eyes
As the knight saves the day
And the hero gets his prize.
It’s another world when love finds a way
And things don’t go wrong.
They’ll live happily after the credits have rolled.
You would not believe the ending
Where the couple sail away,
Because life isn’t so easy-
There are more plot lines in the way.
We could wait until the credits roll
But then we might just miss the film
Because it’s happening as of now.
If you had to read that script
Then you might just throw it away,
You’d get to the point where the feelings show
And you’d see that the hero would be me.
But heroes often fail and love isn’t easy
And the credits never come, feelings don’t just roll away.
I know you would not see that film
Because you wouldn’t want it to end like that-
You’d know the hero should fail
Because in real life
It’ll always end up that way.
