DARFUR
                                                                       ......Right before your eyes nations are overthrown by those who misunderstand God’s true love

I am Muslim too...I pray that my God, Allah, will destroy the devastation of war, and destiny of greed to a division of power and peace one day soon....

VOICES OF THE UNHEARD

LOOK AT ME 

Looking like my daddy 
Makes my mama mad
Since I am half and half
Maybe I am half bad
Look at me, I have colored myself bright
Look at me, I am staying within the lines

ME AND MY CROW


A crow’s foot made its mark 
that I could not wash away
My face was its branch 
as it pecked away the tenderness of my youth
From my elevation my season was changing.....

WATA  MELON

I am the fruit of mockery
the big lipped, black faced, shiftless
sitting on the side of the road,
spitting seeds of blackness out of my being
shamed caused my ancestors to hide 
all evidence of good nourishment in public
I enjoy the natural sweetness of life that was created not by me, but for me
