Trust Your Struggle

IMG_0077.JPG
Trusting in my struggles is by far the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to do. Walking around with the weight of the world on my shoulders, it suddenly feels much lighter once I realized that I don’t have to carry it alone.

These struggles have bestowed upon my life purpose and meaning. For I’m more than just another success story in the making, I’m a chosen spiritual being.

These struggles have given me more motivation than any speaker could ever engage. They’ve built my character upon a strong foundation and blessed me with the wisdom of a sage.

I trust in my struggles as I hold on tight to the mere hope of a better tomorrow. Promising myself to never forget the endless days of grief and sorrow.

But I ask you, what is hope without effort? What is the value of success without failure?
People need to understand that struggle is inevitable, and it is experienced on all different levels.

Similar to a book you should never judge one by his or her outward cover. For its most likely a means to an end or simply a desperate cry for a friend.

Without my struggles I wouldn’t have a story to tell. No way of conveying to you how I once thought I had it all but it was at that very moment that I fell.

Some people don’t want to struggle, they just want success. Not realizing that success isn’t given but earned and can’t be negotiated for much less.

Respect your struggle, trust your struggle, and never neglect your struggle. It was tailor fitted for your life because no one else can survive your struggle.

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.
