Honestly to be completely honest, I often lack in honesty.

I care more about myself, so I just conspicuously feed them lies modestly.

But, I won’t hesitate to throw salt in your wounds if that means they’ll heal. Or even add kerosine to the flame if that would seal the deal.

Throughout all this agony and pain, I some how manage to remain the same…always looking for someone else to blame.

I don’t have the antidote to the poison of which I’ve inflicted upon those closest to me.

I just hope that they can see that I’m simply just a man, which is evident through my numerous attempts at honesty.

Honesty is a beast and has a mind of it’s own. A lil bit is quite okay, but watch out when it’s given to you full blown.

It comes in all different conventions, a one way lane or a two way street and even crossing intersections.

Honestly, honesty can revive relationships but like a double edge sword in the same breath can destroy them.

Either way you approach the situation, approach it with caution. For a lie cannot stand alone, it has to build upon another. But see the truth shall set you free, from yourself and each other.



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.
