The Conundrum

written by: Luiz Syphre



There is a guardian angel that wants my happiness and when he sees me falling in love with you, he whispers in my right ear:

"You're good! Throw caution to the wind!"

There is a demon that wants my demise and when he sees me falling in love with you, he whispers in my left ear:

"You're good! Listen to your Guardian Angel!"

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.
