Isn’t it crazy how u can find something both incredibly beautiful yet terrifying at the same time ? How many of us love the sight of a raging and wood crackling fire as long as it’s controlled behind the large rocks of a campfire? Or the gorgeous and intense visual of an active tornado caught on some foolish daredevil’s video camera?… am I like these things I wonder sometimes? Through out life I’ve had both men and women admire the obviousness of my differentiality in regards to my disposition and personality. A colorful cartoon amongst black and white photographs in an old album. Same time though… I’m often made fun of for being a little eccentric, other worldly, and perhaps even quite coo coo for cocoa pops in my spiritually influenced world views and melancholy beatnik moods lol… nah, I don’t think that boy’s quite all the way right upstairs or has his boat docked all the way in the harbor They probably said. Bright? yeah sure…normal though?… ahhh… he should be on a mountain in robes somewhere eating fire flies and laughing at the clouds in the sky lol… him and his beard! nah, hahaha I’m just playing… I hope i make my neighbors comfortable… I mean well people…. Gn Cass lake and everywhere else… Facebook ppl…peace! 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.
