About the spoken word: Conqueror

Conqueror is a spoken word poetry that talks about how one can choose to conquer when life gets tough simply by changing one’s mindset. Conquering is a choice. We all have the fighter in us — the fighter never dies until we allow it to.

So anytime you feel like giving up, remember that you’re in that moment for a reason. You should not allow it to break you and if does, pick up the pieces and move on. Defeat should not have the last laugh— you should and you can. You are a Conqueror.
