when you’re the final girl

by vampricone6783


*This is a song I made about a character named Soleil Le Claire, from the animated Dreamworks show “Fright Krewe” on Hulu. The second season is coming out on March 29th of this year. In honor of this, I made this song. This song is underneath my folder titled “Some scary-ish stories”. Gacha Club character designs are on my wall. Enjoy this song! Please watch the show, it’s amazing! :>*

I always dreamed of going on an adventure

The final girl to live through it all

I’d brave through all the goblins and ghouls

I’d take their teeth and turn it into jewelry

Because I’m a freak too

And they can’t hurt me


All my life, they judge me

I’m like a Halloween decoration

A timed jumpscare

A thing of nightmares

And I smiled through it all

I laughed at their disgust

“People will hate what they don’t understand, so don’t ever lose your shine” my parents would tell me

So I didn’t


I kept through it all

I waved my freak flag high in the sky

I wore my non-conformity like a badge

I carried the insults like trophies

“Because their hate means nothing when you still stand”

Or so my parents would say


When it was all starting to go wrong

I kept my grin on

The demon wouldn’t give up

So I wouldn’t either

When it said it was going to take everything I’d love away

I told it to crawl back to the hole it came from


I thought that I won

But it showed me terror

It showed me pain

My heart, it aches from the vision

Everything and everyone I ever loved

Gone

Bleeding

Burning

And it was all my fault


I’m the one who made the demon come out

I’m the one who put them all in danger

It was all my fault

It told me to keep quiet

To do as it said

So I listened

I thought that my silence would fix it all

I talk too much

I act without thinking

I put them all in trouble


They came to save me

They came because they love me

They helped me get rid of it

They took me away


“It’s over, Soleil

No need to worry yourself dead

It’s okay

We’re here now”

Or so my parents think

Because the truth is


It’s still there

It’s hiding in the shadows

It wants me to do terrible things

Such awful, ugly things

Parents think they can protect you

They think they can tell you that you’re worth it and you’ll be fine


But I’m not worth the mud on my boots

Or the dirt in a grave

I’m no final girl

I’m just a kid


And it’s all my fault

I’m sorry

“They” said for the first time is talking about literal monsters.

“They” for the second time is people judging Soleil.

“They” as in the people in trouble are Soleil’s loved ones.

“They” who came to help are Soleil’s parents.

“Final girl” is a reference to the final girl trope in horror movies. In this song, Soleil at first thought that being a “final girl” would be cool, but after all that happened, it’s not. What happened to Soleil ultimately made her a sort of “final girl”.

It’d make more sense if you watch the show.

Good morning, dear friend!! :D Ellie here to review these lyrics! Let's jump right into the review!!

The final girl to live through it all

I’d brave through all the goblins and ghouls

I’d take their teeth and turn it into jewelry

Because I’m a freak too

And they can’t hurt me


I love how you describe her as 'the final girl to live through it all'. That sentence just feels so poetic to me, in my opinion. The alliteration of 'goblins and ghouls' flows off of the tongue really well. This verse read well and It gives a spooky feeling. The details of wanting to turn their teeth into jewelry was good. I like the simple phrases that overall give a spooky feeling combined.

“People will hate what they don’t understand, so don’t ever lose your shine” my parents would tell me

So I didn’t


I kept through it all

I waved my freak flag high in the sky


I love that sentence that you quite from her parents. That freak flag high statement reminds me of that song from Shrek, haha. But I think this song contains some of that message. Showing who you really are and not hiding it on the inside, despite which ever species or monster you are. I like the enduring words you use like 'kept through it all'. Awesome!

And I liked how you phrased this part:

My heart, it aches from the vision

Everything and everyone I ever loved

Gone

Bleeding

Burning

And it was all my fault


Then word on each line is a great formatting. It almost represents this blood that is just pouring down like a stream, watching everyone that you loved. And these lines lead into this ending:

And it’s all my fault

I’m sorry


Overall, you had great descriptions in every single line, which combined to give a great horror line, but also sad/encouraging feeling. I love the progression of emotions that we see throughout the piece. Great work! And keep writing!!

Your friend,
Ellie

Hi names 22Midnight
thought i'd take a look at this i'm not the best at giving advice on poetry but i'll try if i can!

now i don't know much about this show so I'm going to just go with what you've written hope that's okay.

Oo goblin jewelry that would be interesting to see on someone you'd have to use something to real clean it up though or it might smell like something rotten.

this started with a lot of hurt visible in the narrators words and it really got me drawn to it so that I carried on readying.

the twist when it went form rising against all odds to feeling like a failure was just done so well to, poetry isn't a thing I read often but I'm glad to be ready yours.

the one line though that i feel could possible be change is I'm no final girl
i looked up a little about this movie but really only a little and i'm thinking that a line like I'm no last girl survivor.

I feel like saying the title takes away from its meaning a little

but best poem i've read in awhile by far see ya

:D





Maybe what most people wanted wasn't immortality and fame, but the reassurance that their existence had meant something. No matter how long... or how brief. Maybe being eternal meant becoming a story worth telling.
