By Mapi from Pamplona, Spain
As a new HOLY Christmas approaches,
A new AIM blazes,
A new aim that even me AMAZES:
Something I want to erase,
But what will I ERASE?
For sure, any resemblance to hatred from my face,
As I long for all malice in me to FADE
In this new year I want those feelings to BETRAY
So that they don’t ACHE
So that they don’t remain
So that the PAIN goes away
In this new year
I want to start over again.
