Brother of the Wind & the Pen

Standard Post with Gallery

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 January's exclusive piece, titled Ride on Through ... a missive welcoming renewal and the clean slate that comes with the New Year ... if you can let go of the past.

Sorez has 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.

Ride on Through

Traveling on a lonesome road
Spinning tires kicking up stones
A lifetime of burdens
Packed in my saddle bags
Not wanting to be a bother
Not thinking that any others
Would want to know
Or would even care
A solo ride upon rough terrain
Hard miles rode in constant pain
Is the gas tank empty
Or could it be halfway full
Might be time to pull aside
Check the fluids and fill the tank
Toss those burdens
Down upon the ground
Leave them sorrows in the past
Twist the throttle with fresh gas
There's a horizon of hope
Waiting on up ahead
Let go of all the burdens
Meet up with some brothers
Get together and
Ride on down the road
Bursts of throttles thunder
Will dissipate the dark clouds
Gotta ride on brother
Just have to ride on through.
