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 July piece, titled Matter of Time, about life's lessons, trust, and always putting family first. "With age comes wisdom," ... as Oscar Wilde once penned ... "but sometimes age comes alone." Don't let that be you.
Sorez, a contributing writer for Outlaw Biker Magazine who also has a popular book of poetry out, graciously pens 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.
Matter of Time
Life can no longer be the same
As it was not so long ago
Like a brand new pair of glasses
A different perspective unfolds
I can see what was once hidden
Right before my very eyes
Things that I already knew
But forgot to remember, sigh ...
Wound up leaving myself open
Naivete of a caring heart
To all the grifters and every con
That happened to come along
Time to twist the throttle
Ride on down the road
Not stopping for distractions
I need to take care of my own.
