LIVES MATTER 

  

It was once engrained in my brain that I was born to face immense adversity and pain

So I do this because 1 poet plus 1 poet equals a community and baring my poetical soul is nothing new to me 

So here goes as the story unfolds and I take you with me down this lonely dusty road

Rest in peace to the soldiers who have no idea what they’re fighting for at home and abroad

Rest in peace to the men and women who have died at the hands of the law

Now let’s not make this about race, but wait..let’s face it, in America that’s always the case

So I ask you, “does the melanin within my skin make me less of a man?” Well, he seems to think so, while he points that gun in his hand

Listen closely as these rhythmic, hypnotic cadences penetrate your mind & captivate your soul with each and every conscious blow

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.
