I’ve spent an insurmountable amount of time in the lion’s den. But I came out alive, so now I walk with the confidence of ten men.

I formulate alliances with all of my enemies and rivals. I say no and turn away from all these secular idols.

This confidence can’t easily be shaken. Simply because it’s foundation was built upon intangible characteristics that can never be taken.

It was written that we would inherit the earth, so at times I may appear inadvertently meek. But witness my confidence and you’ll know that I’m far from weak.

Those who don’t have it call it pride and attempt to feed me a slice of that humble pie. Whoever told you having too much confidence was bad told you a bold face lie.

With nothing but faith, he spoke this world into existence. So I do the same and reach for my goals and aspirations through constant persistence.



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.
