Help Is on the Way

Music video from the FOR YOUR GRAMMY CONSIDERATION Best Spoken Word album. The production showcases acoustic-style recordings and is an extension of MY already-released “Behind Closed Doors” autobiographical Chapbook and Audiobook.

Help Is on the Way documents my High School days of being assaulted whilst walking to school. The poetic production is a Free Verse that presented an opportunity for me to tap into my creative writing skills and to highlight various eventful experiences during my adolescent years.

The storyline covers my daily 15 mile "barefoot" walk to school and that commenced at 6am. About an hour into walking, I started running to school at 7am after being dragged in a nearby woods and experiencing an attempted assault. Becoming very frightened, scared and afraid I ran all the way to school.

The conclusion showcases my ability to exercise self discipline whilst being homeschooled, due to the circumstances. After a year, the Principal of my High School learnt of the assault experience, decided to fund my accommodations to reside in close proximity, to eliminate the dangers of walking to school. It was a definitive period of an excruciating experience that further propelled my sporting career to becoming an elite track & field athlete.

Director Statement

The decision to release the Anthology of Poems comes at a time when colleagues and compatriots have reported experiencing inspirational exhaustion coupled with reduced motivation during difficult periods.

As a Creative Entrepreneur, it is of extreme importance for me to showcase the Anthology’s authenticity throughout the various publications. The production comes at an important time to motivate others, as well as to redefine my unique strength and for others to understand the art of resilience. The documented autobiographical poetic stories are published via Digibook, Audiobook and Spoken Word album.

Throughout the years, my faith has afforded me an opportunity to incorporate motivation and inspiration in order to achieve attainable goals. My hope is that similarly, the authenticity of my message will be conveyed through this Spoken Word video production.
