Your pulchritudinous people (YPP)

My Love Letter To this Everlasting Africa…

Your body is the perfect Eight; the image of a Goddess in photography. Good morning beautiful garden, dear Eden where we started our History.

Your words have Life and Trust because you are Messiah’s calligraphy. Your skin has power that has intimidated the weak as they contemplate their body.

Celestial bodies and powers and entities kneel down at the magnitude of your divine blessings constantly. You are the cradle of Humanity.

Other nations have attempted to belittle you and mask your identity. They have [themselves to blame] nothing left – dishonor their Creator as we ended up in slavery.

An account will be rendered for all the innocent lives sacrificed; for all the women who lost their mothers, sisters, brothers, husbands, nephews, uncles, and babies…

Judgments will validate our silence and forgiveness since we did not want to lose our Sanity. You are still amazing despite your scars and cuts, that will never alter your Beauty.

You are still loving despite all of the hatred spilled; {and} they are in awe and dying inside because they are guilty. Yes, guilty as they are being eaten up by their own insanity.

You are still praising the Heavens; your God has never forsaken you, waiting patiently… Dark Land, you are full of hope because you know that the Soul has no color, why hate blindly?

In this field full of roses, your children and grand-children stand out like lilies. Your pulchritudinous people have a Spirit that looks forward to eternity.

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 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAKfUhJ4BJ8). I recently was asked to blog for the 2013 Men's Pageant for Face of Africa. (Here is the first article I wrote http://faceofafricausa.com/preparation/). "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. http://flexwriterblogsonline.net/?p=231. 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.

One thought on “Your pulchritudinous people (YPP)”

  1. The author, Koumtog uses Africa as a metaphor while making the quintessential land analogous to that of the human anatomy; coated with some fragrance of duality. Koumtog also sheds light on the future judgment for the tyrants of the striking beauty. Great piece once again, thanks for sharing!
