Chanel Speedy Unprecedent Acoustics

Often times I write just to reflect on things that are going in around me. Many times circumstantial situations play out in my mind that I write a poem catered to something that I have witnessed. Writing is a tool of release for me. I love writing creatively, being creative while writing. I invite others to read as I share my thoughts. Sharing was a big leap for me because my thoughts are the only thing that a person can not alter once my mind is set.

That does leave room for constructive criticism (which I am all for), different view points that went unnoticed on my behalf within in writing highlighted by a read and misinterpretation. Within misinterpretation of my writing I have to remind the reader I am hiding facts within a story all the while telling a story. For me my writing is a learning experience that feature innuendos, word play, surprise elements and a backstory as I am foretelling you the original story.

The best way of learning for me is presented in my writing. I learn forward and backwards meaning I analyze a situation and see both sides, why person A made their final decision and why person B came up with their conclusion. In doing so I am practicing my forward thinking skills and doing background research in order to understand what is occurring. I invite you to read Pain below I debuted this on Al Sharpton’s Keepin’ It Real radio station at NAN (National Action Network).

PAIN by Chanel Speedy (Unprecedent Acoutiscs)

They say love is pain
However Pain is Pain
I pained when I seen you
inject yourself with a needle
Knowing my pain would fill a void in you
You offered to play hide & seek
Because you couldn’t bare
For me to find the new love you seeked

More secretive you became
All for your selfish escape
In my mind it was too late
& time wasn’t on my side
I thought I let you die
The weakness in your body
Matched the strength of my silence
The war you were fighting brought forth nervousness
While your nervous system called it quits

Mind set shift
Long sleeves to hide razor slits
You resemble nothing
I once remembered to breathe life
Skeletal remains
Broken mirrors
Nightly hungry quivers
3 letters quieted your rivers

Darkness
As my future
I couldn’t get pass
My role models path
Sunset at last
Tears drop fast
Memory tracks
Flashbacks
My HEROINE is on HEROIN
Speechless
A sentence with no
Comma
Quotations or lettering
I took your pain
& made it mine
Buried my smile
Allowed burdens to be placed on my heart

The insertion of your new found love Pain
Tore us apart

They say love is pain
However Pain is still loved

Rest In Peace

Chanel Speedy is the definition of SPLASHERY!

Peru Fashion Show
December 22, 2014

The fashion capitals of the United States include London, Paris, Milan and of course NEW YORK CITY!!! There is already a Latin Fashion market here in New York that has a core base of supporters and strong presence which are: Oscar de la Renta (Dominican born, but trained in Spain), Carolina Herrera (has a Venezuelan background), Carlos Miele (a top Brazilian designer) and Narciso Rodriguez (who is a top Cuban designer in the big city). The fashion world are painted with their creations and influence.

In honor of the 5th anniversary of the implementation of the Peru-United States Trade Promotion Agreement, PromPeru, the Peruvian Tourism and Export Board, hosted Expo Peru last month in New York City at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Peru is one of the countries with the world’s most business-friendly environments. We were introduced to the native music, fashion, food and drinks of Peruvians.

At the evening cocktail reception, Peru Mucho Gusto kicked off the Expo’s main attraction, Peru Moda, an exclusive fashion show featuring Peruvian fashion designers,  Art Atlas, Jorge Salinas and Sergio Davila who stunned at NYC Fashion Week this year with his men’s collections featuring designs from alpaca and pima cotton.

I loved the diversity and the cultural outlet of the various fashion that was displayed. There were many pieces that had a double take effect, effects of a bold hello I have arrived and signature pieces that have to grace the New York population. Interesting enough to be conversational ice breakers and unique additions to an already coordinated outfit. Peru fashion is the result of art, passion and nature combined.
