Maybe I am what u say I am..but what would u have me do so u can be right with u again, jump off a cliff?… I can’t and won’t do that… Ever. Throwing myself away because someone hates me isn’t in me. I’ve been through worse in life than some break up. U never aknowledged the source of my strength. What makes me different from all the others u’ve dealt with. So that heat in ur heart is just going to have burn until it eventually dies out…believe me, give it time…It will. I’m not ur problem anymore. Remember?.Those were ur words?… So live by them and let me be. Pack Ru Redfeather. Free 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.
