A fiend!… do u know what a fiend is?… truthfully… do u? It is a soul with no control over his urges…a bothered individual who will sell away any principle or promise just to acquire what his lower-self obsessively longs for. Attention addicts, drug and alcohol addicts, sex addicts, control addicts…how many moral lines crossed daily in pursuit of a meal that will never fill ur belly… The messenger of Allah was right, I know he is because I’ve walked the trail of the one he’s described as follows… “if the son of Adam had a valley of gold, he’d want another… and nothing fills his mouth but dust”… addiction is a type of greed, and greed is surely a sickness of the soul… more and more at any cost or anyone’s expense… even our own children’s… may we all be guided… and may we all be freed…Peace.

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.
