I am not a big poetry fan, however I love music. I listen to a variety of music so I think I can appreciate good lyrics when I hear them. Matches, by Sifu Hotman has stuck with me ever since the first time I heard it on Welcome To Night Vale. You can listen to Matches by Sifu Hotman on YouTube to hear it for yourself. These lyrics really stuck with me:
No friction; no flame;
No struggle; no progress;
How many times do we have to win
‘Til you realize that we have not lost yet?
The lyrics have this perseverant spirit to them. It’s a perseverance that I’ve seen in others and strive to have myself. Also, I love how that perseverance is still met with challenges. You can win, but your wins may not even register with everyone around you.
One half of Sifu Hotman is Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre. He is a two-time National Poetry Slam champion, so I am definitely gonna file his lyrics under poetry. Who’s your favorite poet? What’s your favorite poem?
