For biker scribe Eddie ‘Sorez’ Pliska, poetry is as much about capturing his passion for the moto lifestyle and the raw energy of two-wheeled travel in prose, as it is about documenting determination in the face of the often-harsh struggles of life. He has had his fair share of both.
Here is Sorez's exclusive April piece, titled In Those Moments, which draws on some Jimi Hendrix prose and a lifetime of riding to encourage people to step out of the worries of life and seek out things that 'satisfy your soul'. Life goes by fast ... don't let hardships stop you from grabbing some happiness.
The story of life is quicker than a wink of an eye.
Sorez, who has a new book of poetry out, graciously agreed to pen some inspiration for the NYC Motorcyclist community each month. You can read more about Sorez in a feature NYC Motorcyclist published in the spring of 2018.
In Those Moments
Riding down the road, away from burdens borne,
tossed all of those heartaches to the wind.
Clock is running out, so I do not have the time,
to dwell on all the things that brought me down.
Been a long, hard, road, to get to where I’m going,
I know that I am more than halfway there.
After all the miles and those sorrows left behind,
the wind it does take on a different air.
Two wheels and open roads, satisfies my soul
no longer among the lost and sorrow bound.
At peace within the wind, as the throttle’s twisted,
that is were the rubber meets the road.
As Harley thunder roars, satisfies my soul
onward and ever forward into the wind.
Out there on my bike, riding hard, living the life
those moments in between the wink of an eye.
