Some people say “Pack, u sound so wise… Wow!.. Subhaanallah!… Stop… Listen… Whoever says they’ve got sincerity trapped in a cage in thier breast u need to be weary of. What I want is where I’m walking towards not where I am. One of my prophet’s companions is said to have said…” With all the prayers I’ve made in my life, if only ONE prostration is accepted from the Divine ive got it made. ” This is where those who understand are seperated from those who don’t know. Never be content with where u are on ur spiritual journey. Always find ways to better urself day by day. U may believe so, but I don’t, that I’m somehow safe from my own self abandoning tomorrow what I have so much conviction for today… Heart’s change everyday. Some wake up believers and lay by night cursing God. Saved??? Remember what I said about fear and hope. The middle path.. The straight road.. Strive to live in between the two. I’m not perfect… If I was I’d be floating in the air with wings and a halo above my head… My gratitude is to my maker for all that I have, but I beg for his guidance to get me where I truley want to be in my life right now…in his pleasure following this warrior’s road through life… giving my best for his glorious and beautiful face!…Peace

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.
