A N.O.E.L. by ntho

…an original poem by anthony cerreta

 

As I lay and I pray on this gorgeous Christmas day, I sit and I quip about the many gifts you graciously gave everyday and when I say that I think and I lay it’s actually hard to say the things to say about what I really wanted anyway.

None-the-less I feel blessed as you hold me day by day, all through the day, dark or grey, either way my sight that day. And oh the soothing things you say to ease my pain like the rain that washed the same type of grimy dirt away, it all away, and as I pray that I’ll never stray, I’ll never forget how you stayed, and that I take it with me day by day, each and everyday all in despite of what they say I pray that I’ll take that with me everyday.

Only I hope I make you proud, proud enough to keep a tight hold of me in spite that quite some time I just might break sight of what’s really right or what is wrong between this song of this light in which we call life.

Either way in spite the day I hope I say that I’m never quite so lonely if only you hold me, you can shoulder me and console me, love me and sometimes scold me, but never leave me and always hold me, for when you hold me I’m never lonely, never truly lonely, and when I am ever lonely I know it’s only forlornly.

Lastly that I’m sorry, I’m really sorry – I really try, I swear I try and I sigh that I try maybe too hard just to get by, with the rest of the west who’s the best like the rest, but I sigh that I’m not perfect, and often ponder why I can’t be perfect and what’s my purpose on the celebrated birth of your Son Jesus and my savior and messiah to you my Lord, my King of Most High.

But despite all the spry I realize that my sighs may actually and most importantly be blessing’s in disguise and then want to thank you for my demise as I quickly realize that You are far more clever than I could ever be of that wise if I tried.

Your sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers who try, I hope for this to also be their cry even if spoken through my sly. Because my brothers and sisters who sigh similarly to these sighs, try really hard too and I can sometimes see it in their eyes, despite their actions or their tries, although I’m sure you know quite far more about this trite than I, we love you, deeply love you, and please at least forgive those who truly try…

At Match Creative Talent I successfully managed an internal hosting data migration project, the scope of which included the company’s data transfer from one customer reputation management system (salesforce.com) to another more suited for their Creative Talent Staffing needs, Staffsuite (vcgsoftware.com/).

The project took more than 8 months and concluded with the training of Executives and staff.

Experiential (but magical!) progressive trance track created using Ableton Live. I’m honestly not sure what to make of this track, hence it’s short-hand acronym, “idk”.

Music makes all the difference when perfecting the mood. To show this, I put together an example music video edited to multiple song clips with different genres and tempos. Which melody fits the video best? Why?

These videos are edited to a proprietary pattern of multiple elements that essentially allow this experiential music marketing video to appear that it was created using any music the viewer prefers.

Using a conversation between PoE and Dj Tiesto as my muse, I furthered my digital music composition skills with the creation of my first fully produced electronica music score, “Predictable”.

Through the musician PoE I was first introduced to John Gheur – Founder & CEO of Signature Creative. I soon began working with the creative design start up to oversee several creative projects which included the Desperate Housewives; The Game website, the cover artwork for Target Compilation CD’s “Play/Pause”, Pepsi concept designs and many more.

I’M GOING TO MISS YOU…

…an original poem by anthony cerreta

 

If this pen could talk I’m sure it would say, absolutely nothing.

I ALWAYS TRY, I ALWAY TRY, I ALWAYS TRIP.

Sometimes too hard.

Of course it’s hard, really hard. It’s never fun until you scar.

I hate it when you watched though.

It was never to win [really] but with you I’ll confide, that everything I think within are all these thoughts I’m trying to hide. Not till when I dig down deep inside, that I see the demise of all my lies. [self thought tries of lies to hide]

I realize I showed you everything,

yea but don’t think too hard my dear, it’s just some trickery whispered in your ear. For it’s when I’m holding you so close, that I can see everything so CLEAR

With You I could never Lose.

While at DNA Studio I was approached by a Producer who asked if I would be willing to help their friend whose Myspace identity had been stolen.

Someone had created a fake Myspace page and acted just like the celebrity musician on the popular social network to solicit her fans for money. After hearing such a sad story of innocent fans being betrayed, I offered to help at no cost. After contacting Myspace and releasing several campaign tactics geared toward damage control and reputation management (such viral video’s created personally by the real musician), order was quickly restored and her fan base began to grow exponentially.

Although this campaign was born from unfortunate circumstances, no one could deny its successful outcome. We created a valuable social networking, reputation management, damage control, educational resource and marketing tool that has been used in all recent campaigns. (Plus, there were always a bunch of smiles in the room which made for a productive and worthwhile environment!)
