THESE WINGS (spoken word)

IMG_1354.JPG
I’m tired of feeling so low
and even though I know there’s more to life than fine retail, cars and clothes. I apologize as I fall into this state of repose.

I day dream often, in one hour I’ll make it from LA to Boston. Open my wings, jump off the highest building and set sail..hoping that today’s the day that gravity fails.

Forget about drawing a line, because without borders are these thoughts of mine. Like the stars in sky they always seem to align or sorta like fine wine, they only progress over time.

Now that’s deep, so I sit and argue with my mental about actually taking a leap. Others watch from a distance in disbelief, I simply pick up the pieces to say the least.

These wings were made for flying and nothing more. So I suggest that you find something worth dying for. Live life like there’s no tomorrow, it’s not your time to die. Besides, what are these wings worth if you refuse to fly.

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.
