Conqueror: Spoken Word.
There are days when my soul is weary;
days when I feel let down, broken and defeated. It’s like
defeat brings me to my knees,
it whispers to me— telling me to
give up, to stop holding on— to let

by depression, allowing those whispers
to feast on my strength. Vilified by
pain, I feel like I’m going insane. Sorrow makes mockery of my weakness. My heart pounds profusely as life hits cruelly.
My eyes explode with blasts of teardrops, they are swollen from the waterfalls that burst through them. I groan,
I choke, I almost give up. But then, I remember: I am not one to concede to defeat. I have
the power to rise up and stand on my feet—
the power to defeat defeat. I cannot let it consume me. Though life hits
me hard, it cannot give me more than I can bear. Whatever pain I’m passing through is only momentarily,
a training ground. I will learn from pains;
from my struggles. I will face my fears,
I will summon my strength and trample
on my weakness. I will fight like a warrior and conquer because that’s what I am —

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.
