This is my self-proclaimed dissertation. My alter ego and my true nature always seem to be engaged in a distant altercation.

I don’t see why it’s so hard to understand the true meaning of life. It’s as clear as day. To me good and evil simply have no relation, that means life was meant to be lived in a certain kinda way.

I’m writing this letter to humanity. So we can stop living life in reckless abandon filled with self destruction and vanity.

People obsessed with material things are forced to live outside their means. And those of us with a voice are too afraid of the repercussions, so we’re never heard just simply seen.

Some have no choice but to be consumed by their occupations. First things first we have to look at ourselves in the mirror and put aside all accusations.

Why is it that fear is more accepted than faith? Why is it that race always seems to find a place to rear it’s ugly face?

I’ve seen that greed and sin will ruin most of the human race. The others who can’t stand to watch will most likely off themselves simply just to make a case. At this rate poverty, war, drugs, disease and crime will win at an exponential pace.

So what are we to do as the next generation? Young gentlemen eager to make a name for themselves are willing to be put in a box or a cell over an altercation. Young women who have never been taught self respect, self esteem or true value, search for it in the sheets with strangers they meet in the streets.

We can do better, so learn the true meaning of life. You deserve the same amount of happiness and success minus the strife. Am I my brothers keeper? Why yes, yes I am. Sincerely, dearly beloved.



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.
