A conqueror is one who derives satisfaction from the spoils of war.
Never, a conqueror is defined by battles won and conquests earned.
Turn and take a look to your left, there he stands undefeated.
Chest out, smiling as they recount his acts of greatness.
But you, you are more.
Look deeply and one will see that conquerors allow situations to define them but you instead find strength in the knowledge of your worth.
You are much more.
Much more than the titles affixed by man
Or the labels given by society.
More than the disease that riddles your body
You are much more,
More than the degrees earned in the academic halls of this land
Or the money stored up by man to insure against the unplanned.
You are more than your past attempts at victory
Much more than the bruises that mark each fall
More than the stares and jeers.
You are more than size of your jeans or your parents’ biological genes that convened to physically fit you
Catch a clue and see that you are not defined by status, but by a calmness that the world envies.
You are much more,
More than the acquired cars, houses and electronic toys.
Boys without a clue of their origin,
You are more than the evolutionary school of thought that claims you descend from apes.
You are much more than the pessimistic school of thought that sees every opportunity as a waiting failure.
You are much, much more than the narcissistic school of thought that seeks to elevate self at the expense of a friend.
You are more than his unbridled passion that seeks to conquer
Bruised but not broken, you are Love, Mercy, Peace, Kindness
Hope, Joy, Truth, Happiness
You are more
You are so much more.
You are more than a conqueror
You are more than all conquerors
cuz “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Romans 8:37
