Is Religion really the solution of the problem of Africa?
November 19, 2019
0

Religion has become one big issue especially in my African community. Ghana where I come from is currently one of the religious countries in the world. The building of churches is more than the building of houses as every street corner has a church building. You can’t go 5 building without seeing a church building. However with all this churches is the rising level of crime which shows that people do not fear God.

Christianity is the leading religion now though that was not what our fore fathers stated with. Though there are other religions, Christianity is leading. Though the leaders of these churches preach one God, there is no unity among the various denominations as every church try to compete with each other for supremacy. Sometimes you wonder if it is really one God that is being worshipped.

I sometimes wonder if the Christian religion brought to our shores by the white man along side with the gun powder and Gin is really true and better than our African believe which kept people who believe in it in check. My confusion comes from the fact that I don’t see the white man practicing the Christian religion the way we are doing it. Is the white man that religious that I don’t seems to see so much church of different denomination in united kingdom and the united state of America as we are having now in my country Ghana.

In Ghana though it is said we are all worshipping the one only God, members of one church will travel many miles to church passing many churches along the way simply because they are not churches we were born into. It becomes that serious where inter denominational marriages are not allowed. In some churches you can marry anyone outside your church. You find love outside the church, that person must become a member of the church for some months and attend services before they will be recognized to marry each other. The convection most of the time is from the man’s church.

Christian religion has become so entrench that even when a Christian marries traditional that alone is not recognized as a complete marriage unless a church wedding is also undertaking making marriage a double thing. Now African has thrown out our tradition as if the Christian religion is the solution to our problem as a nation.

With all the religious nonsense, all criminal activities that goes on in our society today have their root to the churches. Church members worship their pastors and prophets to the extent that members will do anything their so call man of God commands them to do with questioning. Members who have nothing to eat or feed their family with are ready to invest everything they have in the life of the man of God all in the name that when you do so God will open the doors of heaven for you.

Sometimes you wonder if these members really think at all as most of this men of God use the name of God to brainwash them while they leave fat on their ignorance.  While they urge members to pay 10% of their salary each month to God as tithe, as is brings blessing to the giver, they never pays that 10% of their salary. They use those monies to buy big cars for themselves in the name of God while members walk without any footwear sometimes. These monies are used to build schools and members children are not allowed to attend such schools for free.

Some of these and many more events made me ask is religion the end of the problems of my country that we have now laid aside our tradition for the believe of some white man religion ?

SECRET MILLIONAIRE: Only The Lazy Can’t Find Work In Ghana
November 18, 2019
0

Patrick Sosu is a millionaire in the making depending on whom you are talking to. This 36-year-old father of three roasts plantain and sometimes corn – depending on which of the two is in season – for a living. He is in a profession that many have relegated to women and largely the uneducated or illiterate in society.

Sosu is always spotted in a suit with a well ironed shirt and tie with polished shoes to match as a plantain roaster. He does his job with passion and declared “I’m a professional in my job.”

He has been in this plantain roasting business for about eight months now and said before he got into it, he was selling other items in traffic and added that he has sold from pure water to fruit juices, bread, biscuits and what have you for years.

He revealed that he has always been unique in appearance all these years with his dressing indicating that “I dress this way every day because it attracts people to me and gets people wondering why I would dress like this.

Some people have come to me to buy my plantain not because they really want to buy, but because they just want to talk to me or check to be double sure their eyes are not deceiving them.”

The Weekend Globe spotted this very well dressed man at the Shiashi bus stop around the Tetteh Quashie interchange and engaged him in an interview to find out why he would ‘suit-up’ to roast plantain – a dress code more or less reserved for the office? Sosu first said he realised that he had to be different if he was to make any progress in his chosen trade which he said he learn amongst other things from his mother.

“I first started this job at Dzorwulu, opposite Fiesta Royale on the George Bush Highway then some officials from the Accra Metropolitan Authority (AMA) came and told me to stop working, pack my things and leave the road side where I was working.

I did not know what they were talking about and why they wanted me to leave the place so I questioned them. The exchanges became heated and they seized almost all my stuff – my big umbrella, tubers of yam, several fingers of plantain and other things,” Sosu recalled.

He added: “All the other sellers around were shouting at them and some were saying I shouldn’t allow them to take them away, but I couldn’t do anything so they took all things away and up till today the things are still with them. So I left the area [and] came here to Shiashi and realised that it was a good place to start all over again, so that is how come you find me here.”

Sosu said he started with just one suit and now has about three and alternates them. He added that “I iron my shirts and jackets on Sunday after church and prepare for the week. This is my office so when I’m coming I have to look presentable.

I’m not shy at all of anybody, in fact a lot of people have praised me for my dressing and some have given me all sorts of nicknames like ‘Minister, Bishop, Director, and Manager’… plenty names. I know it has attracted a lot of people to come and buy from me so I would not change my dressing. I have actually made a lot of friends just because of how I dress.”

Sosu told The Weekend Globe that “business is good but sometimes not as much as I expect. I make about GHC40 and GHC 70 worth of profit a day.

After deducting the money I would use to buy charcoal, polythene bags, papers and other things I would need for the job, I still have some good profit to take home. I buy my ripe plantain from Agbobloshie market and days that I have to go to the market I leave home around 5 a.m and sometimes struggle with the women who also do the same business.

I buy about GHC200 worth of ripe plantain and sometimes even the unripe ones and store it till it is ripe to be used.”

From that quantity, Sosu indicated that he shares it with his wife – who is also into the same business of roasting plantain and has been in it for relatively the same period of time. “We both sell the plantain and this is good business.”

He added that the groundnuts (peanuts) which is the perfect accompaniment for the roasted plantain is prepared by him with the assistance of his wife and children.

“Before I leave home for work, I pray that God should bless all those who bless me and forgive all those who tease and insult me for doing what I am doing,” Sosu stated. “Some people just hate me for nothing for doing this job, but I don’t mind them.

After all I am not a thief or I don’t rob people for a living so why should people hate me? It is this same job that I have done to take care of my children through school.”

Through the period of the interview one thing that was quite clear was that Sosu greeted all his customers with “you’re welcome, how much are you buying?”

Asked about his future plans for the business, Sosu said, “I am planning to open branches around Accra and then spread to other parts of the country. So far I have about three branches and one is being managed by my daughter whenever she is on vacation.

I want to start using take-away packs to sell the plantain in the near future. Very soon I would start preparing ‘kelewele’ (spiced fried plantain) and I would put them in neat packages.

“I am trying to see if I can get a shop in the Accra Mall where I would set up a special business to start preparing special roasted plantain for my customers.

There are plenty jobs in Ghana and I would like to advice the youth that they should not wait on anybody to promise them jobs, especially the government. If even the government promises to create jobs for you, you have to start something on your own.”

“If everybody wants to go and do office work who would go to the farm and plant foodstuff for us all to eat? Who would drive us to work, who would sweep the streets for us? So people should stop saying there is no work in Ghana, there is plenty work here.

“I have through this job financed my junior brother who has passed out from the Ghana Army. I have also helped a friend of mine who is now working with the Customs Office. They call me once in a while to check up on me.”

“This is the time young people must work hard and save towards the future because when you grow like our mothers and fathers we cannot be strong enough to work at that time so we must work hard now.”

At the end of what was a motivating interview, Sosu made a plea and asked for some assistance to effectively grow his business and if possible train other people who may want to start this business and make a living on their own.

LEAVING THE TRUE GOD KIND OF LIFE.
November 18, 2019
0

Leaving the life of Christ is not an easy task for today’s generation and man continue to deceive themselves with the Christian religion because we do not practice what we preach on a daily bases. Walking with God has been taken over by the desire of the world as we do not really understand the trueness of the creator of our very being.

God is the creator of the entire universe and everything that dwells in it. He gave the breath of life to man which enables us to leave a superior life on the land on which he has created above all other creation of his but the question is “do we really see God for who he is in our existence?

Walking the Christian life requires lot of sacrifices which must take us away from the world and the things of this world. The word of God said he who belongs to me does not belong to this world, but he who belongs to this world does not belong to me. It simple, you can not belong to the world and heaven at the same time. In the principle of heaven and the earth, there is no dual citizenship.

 

Sacrifice required of a born again Christian:

1 John 2:15-17

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If any one loves the world, the love of the father is not in him. For everything in the world, the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does, comes not from the father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.

 

Once you accept Christ as your Lord and personal saviour, you have made a part with God and have left your human nature behind. You become a new creation but the question do we really understand it when we accept Christ and become born again?

Being born again in Christ sets you apart from your past self; you become a new creation not by birth but by your faith in God through his son Jesus Christ. You do not go back into your mothers womb to be reborn but your have been spiritually transformed from your human nature to a new nature.

When anyone is born, we are born into a family. It is in that families we grow and learn the ways of man so when we become born again, we are supposed to be born into a family.

It is in this family that we are supposed to learn the ways of things. The very first sacrifice of a born again is to denounce his family lineage because in Christ our earthly family linage does not hold. In Christ we have only the Abraham lineage so once we become born again; we are transformed from our human family to the Abraham family. We form the New Jerusalem with Christ as our leader and God as our father.

Christianity today is very difficult because we are all still clinching to our family lineage and heritage.

If we understand our newness in Christ as born again, all this Christian denomination and difference in faith will not be there. A born again protestant can not win and dine with a born again Adventist because they do not belong to the same church but the question is who the source of that church is?

When we understands how we have been born again in Christ, we will cast aside all our difference, our family lineage, our educational background, our status in life and walk and leave together in the one body of Christ.

My Experiences as a Writer
February 5, 2019
0

I’ve been writing for many years. I started writing when I was in Elementary School. Entering creative writing contests and reading my work in front of the class and audience. I’ve written many poetic pieces and presented my poetry online, offline, and on stage. My work has been published and I’ve been invited to present my poetry to different locations. Writing is very rewarding however writing online is difficult when there’s so much competition. Competitors have tried to discourage my continuing to write but my dedication and motivation continues to be with me!

I’m excited to have incurred many opportunities to advance within the writing spectrum. Being a writer is a blessing although there’s many trials to overcome. Writers should learn how to overcome the criticism. Many critics have discouraged writers which they shouldn’t do. Although I’ve been criticized I’ve taken the critics criticism as a learning tool. Writing is a gift in which I’m so blessed to have. I’ve written plays, songs, poems and I’m continuing to write a poetry book.

Writing offline has created privacy and peacefulness in which every writer should experience. It’s important that I’m able to experience peace as a writer and as a human being. My presentations have caused encouragement to further my gift (s). My blessed hands have allowed me=Tanikka Paulk to write with my right hand and left although writing with my left hand is difficult I’m daring sometimes. “To be a writer is truly the upmost rewarding experience the competitors are motivators. Continuing to writer because I’m a writer.” By: Tanikka Paulk

To be surrounded by the quietness will allow further developments within my writing. The discoveries and the journey’s in which some are too afraid to travel. The televised caption of myself has also encouraged such a journey. Some are unable to understand writers but I’ve read some of what some have perceived as complex writing and really enjoyed the work. There’s so many undiscovered writers but I’m determined to supply the exposure in which so many writers are geared for.

My work has been published online and offline. I’m continuing to journal my work and place the masterpieces where need be. There’s the further exploring of environmental poetry. Observing the creations in which God has supplied the world. Writers should be proud of their work. Some have given up because of the critics and harsh competitors. I’m refusing to forfeit my writing just because of what the critics have to say. “Writing develops as time goes by and a determined writer will experience what the others are too afraid to experience.” by: Tanikka Paulk

“There’s so many variable when adhering to writing the more concentration there is the more developed a writer will become.” )Tanikka Paulk)

Reasoning Reasons and the Seasons
February 3, 2019

What a journey filled with the adversities but thankfully I still have my faith. I’m a believer and will continue to believe in my purpose no matter how many believe otherwise. Oh I’ve searched, explored, and also discovered. To be able to move steadily is such a blessing. I’m certainly dedicated to the dreams and others should be dedicated to their own dreams. “My journey consists of some of the most challenging experiences but my faithfulness remains. (Tanikka Paulk).

Imagine having to experience hatefulness the words in which overly critical people present. Although I’ve been a target and continues to be the target I’m truly blessed. The amazement to experience what I’ve experienced but yet continuing to move forward. I’ve been harassed enough to know that I’m more than average. God has declared my title to be “Greater.” Perhaps that’s why some insist they have a right to stump on my purpose. Perhaps dreamers shut their doors because they’ve had to come in contact with such individuals.

Making the efforts to move further will help demonstrate that you’re rightfully proceeding. Some are quite amazed that I’ve incurred as much as I have. Meaning that I’ve came a long way. I’m continuing to make the strides. “Persons should make the attempts to live their dreams and accomplish further.” By: Tanikka Paulk. There’s advancements in which some have tried to move backwards but my faith allows me=Tanikka Paulk to have the movements. I’m filled with joyfulness because I’ve read what God expects and what He has promised.

My purpose seemed to grab so many folks attention. They’ve wondered why I’ve been allowed to move accordingly. I’ve pondered about trying to find the best techniques in order to achieve my set goals. My moves are observed across the globe. I’ve learned to be more patient oh yes indeed patience is needed in order “to proceed abundantly.” So many tried to remove what God has promised me=Tanikka Paulk to have. Scripture reveals what God has expressed but yet so many try to omit what God has declared.

Unfairness has been experienced but I’m strong enough to withstand the many trials in which some wouldn’t dare to face. I’ve discovered more and have learned more so I’m thrilled. The accomplishments continue persons should really consider living their own dreams better than trying to hang on to a persons dream. Some have “underestimated” my path and found they’re unable to dissect my dreams in which they’ve many attempts. I’m headed somewhere just reading the Bible has alerted me=Tanikka Paulk that I’m uniquely defined.

Effective Leadership Requires the Upmost Concentration
February 1, 2019
6

Have to concentrate because there’s so  many paths to complete. Leadership isn’t everyone’s path. A true leader will know when and how to solve some of the toughest problems. Reacting to every disagreement isn’t necessary. The ability “to function” and proceed confidently is apart of the skills required to be a leader. “A smile and a desire to proceed and accomplish building is what a true leader will want to do.” (Tanikka Paulk). Persons may disagree with the decisions made regarding some leaders.

I’ve been chosen but yet there’s so many un-acceoting individuals but there’s no need to be concerned. “One won’t stop being a leader just because some aren’t agreeing with the decision the “Government” has made. She continues and God has already chosen you to be.” (Tanikka Paulk). My confirmation and confirmations have been revealed so therefore I’m continuing without fret. Leadership shouldn’t entail the foolishness in which persons worldwide have witnessed.

If individuals want to confront the their concerns then they may but there’s no desire to cease my mission. No matter what’s said I’m going to move the way I see fit. Meaning I’m going to use my own judgement and proceed according to what I’ve “acquired.” What I’ve learned and the skills I’ve obtained. The objectives will be accomplished what’s written some haven’t figured out yet. Too many are thinking that I’m a pushover but they’re mistaken.

Firmness is what is instilled although it may appear as though I’m soft. I’m tough. Made to conquer and love will conquer. “Conquers.” So many have caused their own distress by trying to overturn what the Government has decided. “I’m chucking because they’re unaware of the many unseen moves and that’s best because there’s more progress when they’re unaware of the moves.” By: Tanikka Paulk

Effectiveness is right here. The unifying has occurred and will continue to occur. I’ve already demonstrated the know how’s. If they’re unwilling to accept then there’s groups willing to accept. Movements will occur anyway. Qualified leadership will help build a nation. Building is what one is doing right now. I have no interest in trying to tear down my country. I’m refusing to connect to the individuals trying to tear my dreams apart.

Proceeding is best and that’s what I’m doing right now. There’s been a lot of chatter but there’s also progress. What I’m experiencing are tests and so far I’ve gained and regained the proper “knowledge” in order to incur further effectiveness. “Experience is more than an instructor is a achiever.” By: Tanikka Paulk. Scripture helps to adjust yo the matters in which some need my immediate attention and some don’t. “Proceeding.”

Continuation Moma and Patty Sue Talking
January 25, 2019
1

Patty Sue is holding the phone close to her ears and on the other end of the phone was the man of her dreams. He didn’t sound pleased though but Patty was focused because Patty looked directly at the receiver. She was listening to his voice and wanted to interrupt but didn’t. He seemed upset but whatever was the man on the other end of the phone upset about? Patty wanted to know but decided to listen further to what he had to say.

Patty Sue: “Spoke and said, Why such an angry voice? What happened?”

Fransco: “I’m a bit upset Patty Sue I’ve heard somethings and I ain’t pleased what I’ve heard.”

Patty Sue: “What’s been said they still saying mean things about me? They speaking nonsense they jealous that’s all.”

Fransco: “Patty Sue they’ve said the most upsetting things. I don’t know what to think.”

Patty Sue: “So ya believe what folks saying?”

Fransco: “They’re convincing Patty Sue. What they’ve tried to say could cause problems for so many.”

Patty Sue: “I ain’t tending to what the folks saying. They don’t dictate my “purpose.” Better listen to God.”

Fransco: “I sure do love ya but folks are saying some awful things and I ain’t satisfied about what’s said.” Nope!

Patty Sue: Fransco I have to attend to some business so I have to get off the phone now.”

Fransco: “Perhaps I’ll see ya soon Patty Sue.”

Patty Sue: “Perhaps.”

Moma: :What’s the matter dear child?” Ya sure do look distressed.”

Patty Sue: “Moma Fransco the man of my dreams was telling me that he heard folks saying awful things pertaining to me!”

Moma: “Patty Sue folks gone talk and they’ll lie perhaps they are jealous. Pray and keep moving forward.”

Patty Sue: “That’s what I’m going to do Moma. Yes indeed.”

Moma: “There’s tasks to complete and we’s got to finish.”

Patty Sue: “That’s right! We’s gone finish.”

The door opens and the neighbor Charles walks in.

Charles: “What ya’ll up to?”

Moma: “Charles we’s got some business to attend to. So we’s gone head into town.”

Patty Sue: “Yeah Charles coming?”

Charles: Nope! “I’s got to attend to some matters and I’m expecting company later.”

Patty Sue: “Okay Dokey”

Moma and Patty set off to head into town. Moma and Patty looked ahead there was a young man standing near the apple tree. Moma looked at the young man and wanted to ask him what he was doing standing next to the apple tree but decided to proceed to their “destination.” Finally both arrived and as Moma and Patty Sue walked into the shop a loud sound was heard nearby.

Moam: “Whatever happening in the store across the way?”

Patty Sue: “Don’t know Moma but sounds as though some troubles occurring there.”

Moma: “Anyway we’s have to move along because dark fall come fairly quickly.”

Patty Sue: “Indeed Moma we’s better gets to making things happen.”

Moma: “Yep!”

What else will occur while Moma and Patty Sue are into town? Have to stay tuned or perhaps wait to read what else happens while they’re away from home. It seems as though Patty Sue forgot what was said regarding Fransco. Doesn’t appear as though Patty Sue is worried what others are saying. Good! Moma and Patty Sue proceed to accomplish the goals.

I’m me=Tanikka Paulk and I know What to do to Excel
January 22, 2019

No matter how many times some seem to think that I’m their pushover. I’m more than they realize the constant battles but there’s so many ways to become victorious. There’s so many decisions one could either become what the others became or proceed “confidently.” “That’s why I pray, prayer is what has gotten me=Tanikka Paulk to where I am now. That’s what I’m going to continue to do. “Confidence is what I’m about. There are many reasons why I’m proceeding.

Image Credited to Pixabay

“”I am who I say I am.”(Tanikka Paulk). What I’ve discovered is some aren’t quite understanding who I am. The way they attempt to pull down demonstrates they’re unaccepting and unable to connect what has already been declared. Why are so many fighting me+Tanikka Paulk? Competition could be one of the reasons. The confusion has caused so many to behave disorderly. “I Tanikka Paulk know where I want to navigate to. Proceeding is what I’m suppose to do.

As I blink my eyes I’ve already strategized. I’ve spoken my words to God the Father of Jesus Christ. The persons assuming they can cause intimidation regarding my “purposed” movements. Mistaken. There’s so much to explore and I’m geared to follow in the proper footsteps in order to accomplish what should be accomplished. “The meaning of one is there is only one of me=Tanikka Paulk Tanikka Wilson. One duplications aren’t going to do.” (Tanikka Paulk).

I’m where I am because of my faith, dedication, and bravery. Certainly bravery is one of the most distinctive characteristics. I’m continuing to move in the direction in which some may perceive to be the exact direction but God only knows the set direction. “He knows where I’m headed and He has saw that it was and is good.” God declared my purpose.” Amen! What so many have tried to project towards my journey God has protected me=Tanikka Paulk from. To proceed is a blessing and no matter what’s said I’m truly blessed.

The is stems from the what is. What is said isn’t always what is. What can be proven is what will receive the attention. Although some have tried to cause trembles within my movements I’ve been placed where they’ll have difficulties trying to reach. I’ve been seen to be lower but at the highest at the same time. Amazing to see actually. Some wonder why and how to most would seem impossible.

“looking, seeking, finding. I Tanikka Paulk will retrieve the necessaries. Focused and determined just patiently awaiting what is to come to me=Tanikka Paulk. “Designed” and purposed it’s living to become to being I’m apart of the renewed. Oh so many may attempt to remove my presence but God continues to supply my armor and I’m wearing “The Full Armor of God right now. Indeed I am. Greeted the friendly and prayed for the competitors.

Moma: “Patty Sue gone and eat ya dinner before ya dinner gets cold.”

Patty Sue: “Moma I’s a grown woman now and I aint no little child anymore Moma”

Moma: “Patty Sue why ya always saying such a thing? I know ya grown but ya stills my little girl.”

Patty Sue: “When I finish this here dinner Moma I’s going to my room because I’s in love Moma.”

Moma: Oh yeah! What’s his name?”

Patty Sue: “I’m so smitten. Oh my gosh Moma I really love him. He is so kind to me! Yes indeed.”

Charles: “What’s going on in here/”

Moma: “Patty Sue says she is in love Charles.”

Charles: “What?” In love what kind of love?” There’s different levels of love.”

Patty Sue: “Ya’ll gone talk about me while I’s still in the room?”

Moma: “Girl we’s aint talking behind ya back.” (chuckles)

Charles: “Hand me those mittens I’s gone do some yard work later on.”

Patty Sue: “I’m going up to my room and think about my man.”

Moma: “Ya man” What kind of thinking ya doing?” He must be a savy kind of dude huh Patty?”

Patty Sue: “He is more than a woman could dream of.” He certainly knows how to knock me off my feet.”

Charles: “What the other woman’s saying about da man?”

Patty Sue: “oh the hens be eyeing him down and trying to conversate with him but I’s be paying the hens no attention.” “See the women want his attention or perhaps the women need him because he seems as though he is such a giving kind of man and all.”

Moma: “I’m sure he is giving alright!” Giving what ya aint seeing.”

Patty Szue: “What ever do yur mean Moma?”

Moma: “The women wouldn’t hang around da ole man for no reason chld. He must’ve gave the women someing.”

Patty Sue: “I’s haven’t seen what’s he was givin. No Moma I aint seen what he was givin perhaps I’s notice the next go round.”

Charles: “Yeah perhaps Patty Sue will.” Ya gone notice a lot.”

Patty Sue leaves the room and begins to head up to her room. As soon as Patty Sue opens her door the phone began to ring. Patty Sue paced the room (excited) about the ringing of the phone. Patty answered and on the other end was a stern sounding voice. Patty Sue held the phone close and was silent before hanging up the phone Patty Sue glanced at . . . . . .

“Suspense”

There’s more whatever will Patty Sue do about her new found love? Perhaps the audience will find out later. Patty Sue was excited before picking up the phone but what was the man saying on the other end of the phone? Have to wait to find out what he was saying. Perhaps Patty Sue will reveal exactly what was said. Whatever the man was saying seemed to shake Patty Sue.

Chastin felt the frustration because of yesterday’s comments. He began to behave as if he’s lost his mind. What he was told would knock anyone off of their feet. He looked puzzled and just as he was about to head out the door. There was a knock at the door. He “didn’t” know what to think. The room was filled with immediate silence. He was afraid to respond. He answered, “Yeah, I’m in here, what do you want?” The person on the other end of the door responded and said, “What occurred yesterday wasn’t his fault perhaps some explaining is necessary.”

Alright then so explain. Can I at least come in? So Chastin opened the door and entered a frail man with a long beard. He spoke and looked towards the kitchen. Chastin was anxious and asked the man to speak because he had other matters to attend to. The man wiped his forehead and looked at the floor and then looked up again. Some individuals aren’t pleased with your last performance and wanted to know exactly what’s happening. Chastin appeared to be frustrated and didn’t seem as if he wanted to respond.

He sat down and offered a brief response. Lately I’ve been feeling severe fatigue and really didn’t feel as though I was ready to perform but did so anyway. The man accepted his excuse but began to turn around just as Chastin huffed. “What’s the matter?” Asked the man. Chastin answered. “I’m still feeling fatigued and really need to rest but before I do there’s some matters which really need my attention. The man said he’ll be leaving so Chastin can see to the important matters. The yelled, “So long.”

Chastin went into the kitchen puzzled once again wondering why the man was looking towards the kitchen. Chastin began to fetch a drink of water and then walked towards his room. He began to open the chest to obtain some papers and then began to view what was on the papers. He read the words carefully and then started to mumble. Wow! The papers contained some very “Important” information. He didn’t want anyone getting a hold of the papers.

Chastin felt nervous about his upcoming audition. He began to pray and then went into the other room. Once again Chastin appeared to be puzzled. Holding his chin. “Oh I know what I was suppose to accomplish.” Perhaps in  couple of days I’ll be able to finalize my book. Chastin often spoke to himself. The phone began to ring. Chastin picked up the phone and on the other end was a very stern voice. “Chastin there’s a problem.” Chastin responded and answered . “So what’s the problem?” The agency decided to go in another direction.

Chastin was quite disappointed but told the person on the other end of the phone that he needed to go. The person quickly exclaimed, “Later.” Chastin placed the phone on the table and proceeded to read some more of what was on the papers. As Chastin glanced at the few lines he heard a noise near one of the windows. He quickly looked out the window and was surprised to see what was awaiting outside of the window.
