Conqueror: Spoken Word

Conqueror: Spoken Word.

Conqueror: Viano Dee

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

go. I can feel myself being consumed
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 —
I am a

Conqueror.

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.

THe whole point of defeat is not to  give up. This world we live in will throw many hardships at you but the way you maneuver through these hardships is what shows your character and strength.

Very, very powerful words. I absolutely identify with the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness as a gateway to recovery.

Those are some beautiful and very powerful words. Just what I needed, having lost my husband a few weeks ago, with 4 kids to look after.

OMG! Must be tough. I’m so sorry. But listen, you are strong and though it may seem overwhelming, you’ll overcome because you’re a Conqueror. Remember that. Always remember that. Much love, Azlin.

I can relate to this beautiful piece of writing. It depends on how we react to difficult situations. I believe we all have a conqueror within us. It is okay to cry and give in to our emotions, and then pick ourselves up, heal, and continue with life.

I read this at the perfect moment! I can relate to those struggles. I’m trying to cope with my weak emotions and conquer my fear so that I will not have any limit to new things. Sometimes my knees are shaking, but I will overcome them! I do feel like giving up and tears always running down my cheeks, but I will not surrender myself to the whisper of regrets. I really love how you wrote them with full of meaning and impacted on me.

I wish you could get this played on air. Nigerian youths need to hear this, especially with the suicide rate being so high. People need to know they should never give up.

[…]   The you that you know now will not be the you that you’d become in the future. The you in the future will be smarter and wiser.     The you in the future will look back at this moment and be grateful for life, for every pain that moulded you to become the new you.     The point is this: whatever you are going through now is only preparing you for the future. Your experience may be the reason why someone else would be encouraged.     So, instead of listening to the loud voice that is telling you to kill yourself, why not mute it? Listen to the fighter in you that wants to conquer — that wants to overcome. Speak up. Brace yourself. Hold on. Face those fears. Learn those lessons. Move on. Keep moving. Don’t stop. One day, you’ll look back and understand why.   Read also: Conqueror […]
