Ah cannae wait fir next year

Ah chance tae dae it right

Fir ah change, wae oot fear

Fir ah change, shining light

Of success an' good times

Pal, look, that even rhymes

Ah cannae wait fir next year

Wae jist a wee bit mare

than ah month tae go

Sayonnara, 2023

ah'm oot o' sympathy


Thanks for reading!

Author's Notes: Felt compelled to take a bit of a Scots approach tae mah wee ditty aboot next year!

It's fair to say 2023 has been a mixed bag for me. I did win the Extraterrestrial Challenge here on Vocal and just for the sake of self-promotion and stuff and because I am proud, here is the link:

Apart from that, the rest of the year has been a bit hit and miss, if I am honest. Anyway. No moping, just hoping.

If you're keen, here are a few mare bits of writing by myself.
