Iglesia de Pilar
White as the snow, bright as the sun
the marvelous Del pilar church stands on
so special, so calm
that when you enter you feel warm
At the moment you enter
you feel like home
you purify yourself
you feel god
A place to show yourself,
somewhere to cry
to show your problems
without being judge.
