K   Kurt Cobain my idol you still--always remain
U   Unique in a way that few can seek to explain
R   Rejecting yourself – inflicted by a life of pain
T   Too many fans- too overwhelming your fame

C   Courageously you continued to light a flame
O   Our hearts you won-- the talent and shame
B   ‘Breed’ and ‘Stay away’—always ‘On a Plain’
A   ‘All Apologies’ as your hurt remained the same
I     Imagine lost music if your life we might reclaim
N   ‘Nevermind?’ suicide…tragic choice… end game

(A dedication to an icon lost…figuratively and literally)

    I liked how you included the songs and album title in this tribute. Such talent and troubles, sad he didn't make it.

    He certainly was a talented guy. You did an excellent job capturing emotion and spirit with this one.
