Smile Chau Guille =) (reminisce thread)

The other thread is basically about Guille's retirement, so I started another just for goodbyes and reminiscing.
I intended to write this last week as I felt the "end" was coming, but I procrastinated and wrote it last minute. The stanzas don't rhyme or match but who cares, hmm?


So it began,

A glimmer of light? Truly?
As guilt was apparent,
As was the shame of it.
A shirt was offered in reparation
For the mistake,

And so it began.
The man named Coria
Gained love through his
defeat.

The underlying
Cause and effect of
His simply being;
Or, was it the hands?

Ah yes, the hands!
No posseser of knowledge,
No owner of skill of wit
Could fathom such elegance...
illallah.

Subtle ferocity which
Not only mesmerized,
But angered.
How contrary.

No, perhaps it was
The heads/tails,
Jekyll/Hyde,
Sweet/sour persona?

Yes,
Loved by so many,
And not without reason.
Hated by so many,
But not without reason.

Oh the tales of irony and contempt,
Blind adoration
And praise...
But the hands!
GOD HAS GIVEN THE MAN HANDS!

What does it matter of
His blasphemy?
His fear of unmarked water?
His - though understandable - distrust?

Since accusation was judgment,
Since suspicion was truth,
Since mistakes were intentions,
Since tomatoes were vegetables...

What does it matter of his
Unwillingness to give a damn
About what he, or she, or they
Felt? About anything?

Baila!

He has been given feet.

With a befitting nickname,
The spell was cast which
Could not be
Undone.

And so it was,

The man named Coria
Scorched his opportunity
To show you all!
Yes! His chance to prove to all...

And scorched was as
Close as it would come.
Poor Guillermo,
Poor, poor Guillermo.

But there was no time
To waste!!!
For the man named Coria must
Reach the finals of s'Hertogenbosch!

So it began, again,
But tennis was not the
Focus.
Not anymore.

The man named Coria
Was being watched,
Ever so closely.
How will he ever survive?

With his hands?
His God-given hands?
The feet?
Baila? Perhaps?

No, it wasn't so much
About the hands, or
The feet,
No, not now.

It was about the battles,
The struggles,
The close wins, the slight loses,
"Coria the Warrior."

"Underdog" was not
Suitable.
No! He was more than that!

Conqueror of doubts!
Thief of hearts!
Ruiner of predictions!
Oh the stupidity of the
Forecasters!

The failed audacity of imbeciles!
Mary! Jon! Justin! Pete!
A little birdie and his favorite word;
"PUTA!"

Fight! And win!
Fight harder! And win!
Fight harder! And fail!
Fight even harder! And fail.

Fight, and fail.
Arise from the count,
And fall.
Take another blow, and fall.

Through all the failing
And falling,
There were those who
Appreciated.

There were those who
Wondered "why."
Those who thought it should
Stop when they said,

Though they possessed no
Authority, as no one does.
Hmph.
Go for what you know.

And the man stayed on,
In contemplation.
Will he?
Or will he not?

His ability to keep
Them, us, all of us
Close in suspension
Speaks for itself.

We would never leave.
They would,
But we'd been through enough
Shit to tough it out.

And when he was
Ready, we would be.

And so it is.
He is ready and
So is the clan.

He is ready to say goodbye,
And so is the clan.

Goodbye
Guillermo Sebastian "El Mago" Coria.
Thanks for reminding me that
The end is never certain
Until it arrives.

........RE: GOD HAS GIVEN THE MAN HANDS!......

that poem is beautiful Saara!!!!!

you especially hit gold with:

Ruiner of predictions!
Oh the stupidity of the
Forecasters!

as i have never been a believer in finality, i might end this:
The end is never certain
Until it arrives.

with this:
The end is never certain
