Every sunrise is followed by a sunset. So live your life in fear of no regret.

They say life is far too short. So don’t worry about pleasing people of whichever sort.

Find what makes you happy and do it to the best of your ability. That way if you leave a legacy no one will ever question your validity.

Be careful who you choose to befriend or set aside as a foe. Because like enemies, friends will smile in your face and laugh when you go.

Stop hating, fight less and love more. Do your best to remain humble whether you’re rich or you’re poor.

Don’t ever forget family is dear. So whatever you do keep them near. Perseverance is key, stay wise. Because at the end of every struggle there’s always a prize.

Invest in your future, children & wife. Never choose to gamble on life. No man knows the hand to be dealt that’s not a good bet. Because every sunrise is followed by a sunset.



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.
