The first poem in Godspeed2’s collection reads, “You are invited to join me as I log into my thoughts, / Scroll through the documents, and watch the recordings.” This is merely the first offering in a deep and thoughtfully written and curated collection of poems. Godspeed2 writes about the creative process and the many emotions he feels as he looks back on the big moments of his life. This personal compilation gives readers a unique, intimate portrait of Godspeed2 as a man, poet, student, and human being.
Each poem is an emotional commentary on specific moments in his life. “No Fatherly Image” laments his parents’ divorce and his father’s absence from his childhood. “Realities Inscription”follows the aftermath of a terrible accident. “Blueprint” shows the promise of new love.
Godspeed2 lays bare his most important relationships. His work shows the ecstasy of entering a new relationship and the euphoria he feels with his lover.
Godspeed2 cites famous rappers Eminem, Tupac, Kanye West, and others as major influences on his life and work. His passion for rap and spoken word creates poetry that practically shouts from the page.
