Two names… Al mu’izz and Al mudhill… Two holy names of God I hold dear from the teachings of my way. Their meanings?… Al mu’izz is the giver of ‘Izzah!… honor and glory because he is Al ‘Azeez the Honorable and Almighty one… by ur endurance, willingness to sacrifice, patience, and fidelity all in the remembrance of a Maker u cannot even see but whom u feel in the very core of u, he raises u before him in rank and degrees. Ur true worth is known only to him because ultimately it’s only his view of u that matters since he alone made u and to him alone shall U be brought back. I said it earlier, if he were to give me what my petty human soul truly Longs for I would be abased and humiliated. He knows and has already decided my provision in this life. So In him alone I trust with providing my true needs and not just spoiling me with what has no inherent spiritual benefit but just in a worldly sense feels good. When I have time I’ll explain God willing the name Al mudhill… The abaser! Or dishonorer. Soon. 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.
