It is always a privilege to share poems that are submitted by those talented poets such as Luiz D. Syphre. It’s been a while since we promoted a poem written by this American poet. This is the poem Vs. the Past.
About Vs. the Past
The poem arrived via e-mail and Luiz did not supply a motivation to write this poem. This is a creative challenge for us editors!
Luiz writes about how he deals with those heavy memories. This poet is in a duel with those memories, that he wished he did have to see anymore. They stare and snare.
Sometimes life isn’t that fair as we would like to think. There are times when you wished not only to let this dark cloud pass. At a moment further in time, once these moments have passed, there is only the recollection of that what happened.
Halfway the poem, Luiz tells the reader that he wants to fight those demons from the past. To never again let them conquer him. To embrace what is good and let go of that what is not.
This poem is a perfect poem for slam poetry. In January 2018, we will go deeper into this subject. So, that is something to look forward to. In the meanwhile, here is the strong poem was written by Luiz, Vs. the Past.
Vs. the Past
Not a prayer
here and there
back in time
give it face
earn my place!
fuck that space!
live in grace
this my place!
fight a case
for my base
