I wasn’t able to post this earlier, but I still met my Wednesday deadline.
I was inspired by watching the documentary Big Boys Gone Bananas!* earlier and I wanted to write a katauta based on the film’s message.
Interestingly enough, one of my Christmas presents is shown in this video. I really need to put it to use.
Can you believe I did 40 of these poems already?
This track starts the more “positive” portion of the EP. Sure, I acknowledge the hatred in this world that I hold onto, but I wanted to use a war metaphor to fight back against these dark thoughts. I used the term incomplete specters because some of them still haunt my mind after thinking that they went away. I’ve asked myself “Am I REALLY over this yet?”. I also have really good long-term memory by remembering random things, but I never forget the bad things people have done to me. I just wanted to be free from this hatred.
