Despite what you may of heard.
My advice to you is to watch your thoughts, for they become words.

Follow your intuition and pursue all of your passions. But watch your words, for they become actions.

Don’t feed lust or greed, because everything you see doesn’t call for you to reach out and grab it. Watch your actions, for they become habits.

If it binds you, attempt to break those chains. But if it frees you, shout it out and don’t be afraid to dance in the rain.

Watch your habits, for they become your character. Watch your character, for that becomes your destiny.

The words of JFK is all I’ve heard in my head lately. Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly.



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.
