Soul-murder is what I’d call it… coming at every opportunity God brings u with a petty pretense. Trying to negotiate deals with the owner of everything as if u had something new or even ur own to offer as collateral. I say to u now, as I’ve heard it said to me long ago, when I myself thought I was more than what I really am… just a man. It was said in regards to our attitude towards our Maker… “ The son of Adam surprises me over his arrogance towards his lord, when yesterday he was but despised fluid (sperm) and tomorrow he’ll be but dust!”… a woman I once courted criticized my faith by saying “how could I ever limit myself like that jeez!” So u could limit urself to some game playing and pleasure seeking man and go through a thousand different degradations all in the name of love for ( yo baby-daddy!) but u can’t make time to honor ur own Creator ???? … in the words of the Prophet Muhammad pbuh I say this… if u feel no shame, then do whatever u wish… which doesn’t mean literally do whatever u want, but analyze ur sense of shame and get right… behave… 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.
