19 yr old…man???… nah, boy… arrested and convicted for multiple bank robberies in the twin cities. Federal inmate. Florence Colorado 2000. Thought I knew…I didn’t … do I know now though?… ppl really don’t have a clue. Prayer can change ur destiny… tears shed in prostration due to the shame of our rebellions wash away the black stains of sin on the heart… I’m no gangster…no fiend…no freak…I’ve become a man.

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.
