I once despised pride, down in my soul next to my heart is where it now resides.

The fear inside of me cowards in the shadows & longs to be unleashed but the God I serve is one hell of a beast.

See, some possess an abundance of talent. Others lack the persistence to pursue obvious gifts. Regardless check the list, I guarantee your name still exist.

Honestly admonish me at no cost at all, acknowledge my skill-set as I write on these walls.

Gifts are easily given and can easily be taken away. So each and every day I simply feel the urge to pray.

We don’t view life in the same perspective. Because I know that someone drew up the blueprints then handed me the directives.

These gifts always have a greater purpose. And it’s always a shame that some may never find what their true worth is.



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.
