Asphyxia (Explained)

A Conversation.

Subtle voice, you are Soulful and very wonderful.
You are a great woman!

However misused, you are a Beauty that is power-ful.
No matter how misused the word Beauty has been,
Your beauty is powerful.

Talking to you just now did alleviate any mindful
heartaches, that was beautiful.
Talking to you makes me forget my own headaches
and heartaches.

As the winds blow, let the tree stay grounded and cool,
rooted even as some leaves may leave, nothing blissful…
There is a passage in the Bible that talks about building your House on
Rocks so when violent winds blow, it will stand. Hence, it is grounded.
That Home has solid Foundations!
Nothing would be left to chance; you will be happy.

How are you feeling?
Thus far, close to God.
Why be even and act crazy by being odd?
Here, I wanted to play on words by contrasting them:
Far vs. Close, Even vs. Odd.

We’ve gotten too comfortable,
Abel made Cain uncomfortable.
Therefore he got killed!
Here, I wanted to underline how unexpected events can be.
That Humans have gotten too comfortable with life.
I was also recalling this event that happened in the book of Genesis,
I believe it’s the second most tragic thing that occurred after
Adam and Eve got kicked out of the Garden of Eden, that their sons committed
The First ever Murder recorded.

That time is extremely valuable and we don’t value ours enough!
That we no longer hold on to our strong foundations (Hate and Love).

Let’s love what needs to be loved with all of our hearts.
Let’s hate what deters us from loving with all of our hearts.

Hence we try to limit our fear through asphyxia.
Not knowing that living goes beyond our bronchia.
Let’s live! If anything let’s leave behind bad nostalgia.
Living is Spiritual.

Activist, Model, Poet/Writer, Soccer Player and an Entrepreneur at ENTREPRENEUR DE DEMAIN. I have to clarify that my focus from 2006 until 2012 was modeling and the Entertainment business. I never wanted to be an actor although I currently have two Wavers under my belt. I just "need" one more to go from being a Non Union to an Union (SAG) "actor" but {again} that was never my passion- acting! I (nonetheless) have [indeed] done a number of background acting works and gigs. My first work was for NBC and the first show I have ever worked on was 30 Rock. It was unbelievable being on stage with Aleck Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Tina Faye, LL Cool J, Wayne Brady (those last two were featured co-Stars); that was shot on 2/08/2007. I also did some background acting on Cashmere Mafia for ABC as of 9/2007, Ugly Betty from 2008-2010, Kings (2009), Royal Pains and the Good Wife (2010). It was great being an extra also in Films like: THE SMURFS (shot on June 2010) and NEW YEAR'S EVE (2011). As a Poet, I not only want to convey what I feel but {I want to} also express what you, the reader, feel. My inspiration is the loving grace of God (Jesus Christ), my country of birth, the Republic of Chad (Africa) and this World you and I live in. I also find it in Nature (her beauty), my Family and experience. But also in great writers and people like Leopold Sedar Senghor, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, e e cummings, Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) and Jacques Prevert (he is French, I am fluent in French). I also did model as mentioned, I have done a number of fashion shows (Couture Fashion Week in 2009 & 2010, Africa Fashion Week in 2009, etc) when speaking of my younger days. As a soccer player, I played every Sunday in an amateur league in Long Island City and Flushing, Queens. Actually, I went to Kansas City March of 2011 to try out professionally to be part of the Kansas City Sporting (a Major League Soccer) team. I did not make it, unfortunately. My sense of Activism is an everyday matter, from the way I carry myself to writing and promoting this beautiful Art called Poetry. In the future, it will involve concrete actions in developing not only Chad but Africa and promoting the values of Education. I am currently dabbling with the thought of becoming an accomplished lucrative poet (I write a lot!), becoming and a successful Entrepreneur. But yes, I would love to be connected to an understanding PUBLISHING COMPANY that will understand my creative drive and artistic vision so please reach out to me or refer my work if you can. As you read and as you saw, my real Passion is Poetry. I love writing poems. Recently, I have been performing it only because it was another way to reach out to People ( I recently was asked to blog for the 2013 Men's Pageant for Face of Africa. (Here is the first article I wrote "Home-less" was a poem written for a project that was helping people affected by hunger and poverty. It was for the The FWCares Project. My self-published book of poetry, entitled CLASSICS: DIPLOMATS IN EXILE (2007) is my #1 Achievement. I started writing at the age of 18. I am in need of sponsors and/or publishers. This vision God blessed me with is simple: We Will Change The World One Poem At A Time. NON STOP POETRY... It is within ALL of us! Just find it.
