Hate…it isn’t right, but I’ll tell u all something that’s true… bad situations and opposition have made some fortunate people through out history names that will be remembered until the world’s ultimate end because of how they reacted to it. So Feed me what u will…but ingesting minute amounts of poison over time allows for a strong tolerance of it… here’s a secret… u know who helped me on my way to this path I now walk? A racist white man. Seeing I had interest as an incarcerated youth at another young inmate praying salaah on his prayer rug he sneered, and said to me with absulote contempt “ how come u little black guys always wanna be “Moslems” when u get locked up, ain’t jesus enough?”… did he not already see the rebel in me?… are u the shaper of my destiny?… I’m no longer a boy taking guidance from the uneducated… I have no need to do so… knowledge comes from focused study and actual observation… reflection and sincere thoughtfulness over a matter. Most ppl have no clue as to what they really believe or even why, but have a seemingly well thought out and advanced opinion about everything… it is these types of ppl most others follow… but, good luck on ur paths and may God guide us all… we do need it … Pack Redfeather

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.
