Decide, poetry written by Luiz Syphre at
Chris Benson



written by: Luiz Syphre



I’m not wholesome, but if you accept me
my whole being will be forever yours
not just some

it is no surprise
that most times
I curse when I talk

but know those same words
will turn tornadoes
to whom wish you harm

my checking account is empty
but if you take my hand
your spirit will be as full as a super moon

I can’t always take you out
to a five course dinner
but I’ll slave in the kitchen

to fill your food cravings
or make you full
in any other voids within you

yes, at the moment I am spiritually
and financially broken
but darling, my will is unbreakable!

love, I will sweat an ocean
to buy a golden pedestal reserved
for your perfection as quick as I’m allowed

my queen, know my deficiencies are temporary
but if you take me, my resolve and devotions
will be eternally your dominion

I immigrated to the states from Mexico at age 12 and I quickly fell in love with poetry after my grandfather read some of his poems to me. However, at 18, I had a young family and that left very little time for this endevour as I started working to support us. I returned to adult school to finish my diploma. At that time I developed a severe depression that I still struggle with to this day, but I found it to be a great source of inspiration as well. Today I live in Los Angeles and I'm divorced. I have two children I see whenever possible and two adult kids. Both my Grandfather and his brother are award winning poets and journalists, with one, (Bartolome Delgado DeLeon) having a street, library and a prestigious national poet award in his honor.

Most of my pieces come from personal experience and true to me. Sometimes my material is raw, other times murdeous, and yet other times romantic, but always me, 100% authentic guaranteed.
