Blog Post #5 - Italian Sonnet - Britney Spears

One gloomy night, Britney Spears shaved her head

Two young children screaming by her side

She is divorced and is nobody’s bride

Drunken and laying alone in her bed

Her unpredictable behaviour

She married Kevin Federline twice

Stuck up in Vegas, always rolling dice

Only she can be her own saviour

Her life back together, her hair sprouted

She is slowly picking up the pieces

Why was she ever insanely doubted? 

Always being judged by society

Constantly rising to her thesis

Now on X Factor, hanging with Demi

She is back on track, it is safe to say

That our Queen Spears is finally okay

Post #4 - Ballad

I came home to you crying

On the ground, was your wedding ring

I asked, “What’s wrong mom?”

I heard the word divorce, and I went numb

The next day, you looked as normal as any other human

I wasn’t fooled by your grin

I knew you’ve been through pain

I said, “Don’t you worry, we will only gain.”

You believed me so 

All we ever needed was hope

We fought together, through this battlefield

Brendon and I, we were your shield 

Time passed and so has the sorrow

All I wasn’t is for you to be happy tomorrow 

Your laughter crackled

Even without him, our family felt whole

I think you’ve finally realized 

That moving on will help you rise

The divorce means nothing

Well what can I say, it’s just a ring

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be
There’s a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go I don’t know she wouldn’t say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go I don’t know she wouldn’t say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

The song “Yesterday” by the Beatles, is a ballad because it includes language that directly expresses information about the man’s relationships and life lessons.  It made me infer meanings. Additionally, the song was written in first person and words such as “shadow” and “hide” was used to convey a particular mood, in this case, a feeling of melancholy. The song also contains a repetition of a stanza, “why she had to go I don’t know she wouldn’t say. I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.” This song retells the an events of the author. 

It is the story of a man who is in a uncomfortable situation. He finds out that in the past, he was living thoughtlessly, not realizing how great his life was. He realizes that he now misses what was so great before, yet he did not have the consciousness to be aware of it.
The song also states that a girl broke up with him because he believes that he had said something wrong, although he does not realize what he said.
He is in a dark place and does not know what has led him there.
He understands that it is not always right to think ahead, and that the best is not always “yet to come.”
