Alhamdulillah i have been a Hafiz for 5 years now, and to be honest, it's been much difficult to retain the Quran in memory than it has to learn it by heart in the first place. I have lead the taraweeh prayers for 3 of the 5 years and i must say it has been a special experience for me reading infront of many people in the month of ramadham. I have had my ups and downs and it has been the case particularly in the last few years as studies/work has affected my routine of reading my daily manzil. However, at this point of time the last 15 juz i've learnt are particularly well retained in memory and the first 15 juz are a bit rusty loosely speaking. I am working on these - Inshallah i will get those up to scratch for next year. Finally, id like to say may Allah give us all the strength and hikmah to retain the Quran in memory and respect and adhere to it for our entire life. Ameen.

It's the second one. Hafez is one of Persian/Iranian popular poets. The reason why I first came here -_-".
