If u rejoice alone in prosperity, and consistently despair in adversity… then u know nothing of the meaning of life or the point of faith… and the life of this undependable world is ur heart’s only home…a shame, for there’s so much more than what u see alone with ur eyes…the clarity of true sight comes with belief in that which gave u ur lesser worldly sight in the first place… and the darkening of ur perception is through ur denial and doubt of what should be obvious to anyone with eyes…

I am a walking contradiction of traditions some say. An African American and Native American Muslim poet with a personal life history as violently turbulent as a Storm. A visionary from the bottom of life’s social barrel striving to share the hope found in the light of faith through sometimes dark but real poetry. I’m a former member of the Bloods street gang, former serial bank robber, and both federal/state prison convict. I live on my mother’s tribal reservation of the Leech Lake band of Ojibwe in Minnesota.
