The Vagabond

written by: Luiz Syphre



I’m a vagabond
traveling the streets
a free spirit walking
to a different drum beat

I do as I please
if you know what I mean
my life is worry free
I live in a dream

drink when I want
honest as can be
sailing with the breeze
I port seven seas

I’ll say “goodbye!” one day
when death rides this way

floating to starry skyways
with me a sunny day
Mase at Corner’s Bay
or maybe when she said “always”

satisfy your pleasures
do it without measures!
for the black knight no leisure
in the end
only memories are treasures

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.
