All these lies that I’ve been told and dreams that I’ve been sold, proceed to simply fabricate in my mind as I grow old.

I sit and reminisce about the times when the thought of growing old was a state of mind that I couldn’t wait to behold as it would eventually drag me down this lonely dusty road.

At that very moment my current state of mind had very little to do with my age or current place in time. I know enough to know that I know nothing at all.

From the very beginning I was a menace. But causing havoc to no one other than to myself. Always second guessing myself, not realizing my God given wealth, while settling for much less in hopes of gaining success.

From the very beginning I was taught to bounce back. To believe that I was made to physically and mentally achieve virtually anything that my mind could visually conceive.

From the very beginning I knew these mental notes would be of some use. So I continued writing on these fine lines in my mind, simply hoping to buy my future self just a little bit of time.



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.
