Tell us a little about your background...
Christopher L. Fields is known in some circles as The Poetry Man. He is a full time Poet & Spoken Word Expressionist. Christopher has
dedicated his life to the promotion of Love, Peace, and Effective Communication through Poetry.

Trained by the world renowned Watts Prophets; he now conducts workshops that focus on self esteem building in "at risk" youth through
Poetry/Hip Hop & Creative Writing, with an emphasis on overcoming their fear of public speaking.

Christopher is also a Blog Talk Radio host. He is an advocate for Poets, Independent Artists and Entrepreneurs. His strong belief in the
power of collective works lead him to coin the phrase; "WE" are Greater Than "i".

Christopher believes that ineffective communication is worse than a lack of communication, because at least with silence there is no
room for misinterpretation.

In speaking on his soulful performances, he said "I imagine whatever setting I find myself in as a studio, and your mind is a canvas that I have been commissioned to create a Masterpiece of sound on."

Christopher Fields doesn't recite poetry, he is Poetry - in motion, in the stillness of your heart, and the yearning to love and be loved.
He is a Poet, a Spoken Word Artist, and Inspirational Speaker all rolled into one. He dreams in color and out loud.

Christopher's personal mantra is "Dare to be great!"

Have Faith

"A Matter of Faith"



Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation

That seems to have no way out

Where we once walked tall and sure

We now stumble in doubt

When fate delivers a swift and telling blow

And you feel the hurt and despair

That only a fallen man could know

When you finally come to realize

That you’re only just a man

Close your eyes and don’t be afraid to cry

Place your life in God’s hands

Sometimes you must lose in order… Continue

Should we be "Independent" or "Interdependent" Artists?

Posted on October 19, 2009 at 12:44pm 0 Comments

I believe that the term "Independent Artists" should be replaced with "Interdependent" Artists.

Regardless of the genre of expression, artists have more in common with one another than

many of us realize. Our Network will ultimately define our Net Worth.



"Interdependent" Artists should continue to network with and support one another.

We should recycle our talents, our dollars and resources within the community -



Two things stand out in my mind as… Continue

Christopher,
Outstanding Poetry, nice RnB background music. Let me know
if you need some tracks.

Hi Christopher, Your lyrics deliver positive messages with soulful music, but they do not shirk from the burden of responsibility coming from your awareness of the tough issues, and the song of survival and celebration. Stick with that and (from what little I know of spoken word art) I would contend that your audience will only get bigger. Did you check out the track with GSH on Brian Jackson's superb solo disc 'Gotta Play' - so great! Keep on keepin' on.
All The Good Things

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
