HUNGRY & FOOLISH

IMG_1288.JPG

Hungry & Foolish since September of ’89. I do what others can’t, I try to walk that straight and narrow line.

Yet without borders is my present state of mind. I fear no object, place or human kind. These ambitions however have the power to give vision to the eyes of the blind.

It’s been a long and perilous road. But I know he walks with me, so no amount of pressure could ever make me fold.

True success and happiness is the ultimate and goal. Come with me I’ll take you along for this ride. I have no worries, in him alone I confide.

I’m only human, so over and over I have failed. If you aspire to be perfect, I’m afraid that ship has never sailed.

Stay true to yourself, that means follow your heart and intuition. And promise me you’ll never fall victim to your own inhibition.

Stay hungry, stay foolish is what a wise man once said. I took heed to those words by Steve. How that statement changed my life, you wouldn’t believe.

About Lazarus_of_Montserrado

Lazarus (Hebrew: “God will help”) Siafa was born in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa. A once abundantly prosperous and promising nation that was crippled by poverty, violence and corruption in the late 80’s to early 90’s due to a Civil War that lasted approximately 14 years. This blog is a collection of thought provoking, spirit lifting and ambition driven poems as well as spoken word written by Lazarus for those who share a similar dream and perception of life. The vision that no matter the obstacle, failure, setback, trial or loss in life that you hold the power to overcome it all. You may have been born to lose but in time can be built to win and God willing can accomplish whatever your heart desires.
