I’ve heard it said… the more u chase this world, the more it runs from u… Like a bully teasing a starving pit bull on a chain with a bloody steak…yeah…its Madness…but this is our plight…forever wanting more than we actually need and finding ourselves enraged when someone else with nothing, finally ends up with something that our eyes want to personally embrace as thier own. Im a part of it too… But I tell u…I don’t get it…and this is why although I get annoyed at other people’s pettiness, I fight myself, not to put myself above them in my heart because I know there’s many things others have been granted I’ll never have a share in but that I secretly too long for… If this life isn’t a test to weigh even the most subtle of our seemingly innumerable human desires, targets, and ambitions,then I have no clue what else u can see all of these contradictory thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about our world and eachother can mean. So I tell u like I tell myself… Regardless of what u see or hear here.. Be careful… If the heart follows the eyes and ears than maybe what everyone says about always following the heart is dead wrong… I don’t know for sure… But maybe… Because my eyes and ears in regards to other people’s movements and words fall more on falsehood than truth… More on compulsion than comprehension. Call me a cynic I guess…

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.
