Take Me To Places UntraveledKneel In SilenceTake Me To Places Untraveled by The-Port-of-Riches
My spirit bears me
Pray for guidance in homeward travels
Even in my darkest hour
Kneel In Silence
Sealed with my virtues' travels
Take me to places untraveled
Whose hand commands my thunder
As I cry for my soul torn asunder
Unto what gods do I call
To protect me in my time long traveled
Prepare a throne of stars around me
Fall away from places long traveled
Take my fear of death and shadow
To places lost and unforeseen calling heaven
Answer my call in desperate hours
Light a lamp to bright tomorrows
Bear a noble purpose in my soul
tempered in flame and furnace.
Take me away to places untraveled
As angels on high proclaim my travels
Strengthen my heart in times of sorrow
Prepare a throne of hope before me
Take my fear of death and shadow
To places lost and unforeseen
My shield and sword will guide me
To realms unknown and unimagined
Formless and vanquished lead my feet
As angels on high proclaim my travels.
Unforeseen and alone befallen.
Even in my darkes
I have made enormous progress over these past ten years, working in artistic talent.
I have done a lot of drawings, coloring, animations, writing and music.
And while my writing is too intangible to show in video, I have elected to redo a select few of my original 3D artwork and 2D designs using techniques and philosophies I've developed over the course of the past year. And so here begins my tour, as I take on the future that is within me. I even elected to write an anthem for myself. An anthem that reflects my current, happier disposition; while still keeping true to my Afro-Latin roots. The four minute (and some change) video will go through, in no specific order, a flythru of the 2013 Amani Unus project (Which uses the 2004 model I designed on paper in Drafting,) First Person view point animation, flags, space scenes and soldiers. Some of the redos feature characters from my writings, while others are much more subtle. So mash that play button. Take in the music, and most importantly, comment on what you expect me to do in this new year, and the coming year. I am open to suggestions. So play away. Take on your future; and be inspired to stay inspired.
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.|
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.
I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)
For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.
College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.
In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.
I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.
My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.
But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.
