I am a voice ILLUMINATED, CULTIVATED, DEDICATED to expression: expression of reality/joy/pain and the inclination to maintain the spoken word tradition. I consider myself neither poet/composer/musician, I am what I am a living voice speaking t h r o u g h poetry from the wilderness, and I do what all committed voices do. I examine life, I dream, I preach, I scream, I teach & I cry about what America does to it's black people, and what black people do to themselves, and why. My non-prime time words and messages are a ***** to many, and a blessing to some who believe a committed voice should be like a talkng drum, taking the word sound language to the upper stratosphere. My voice is ancestral rooted blending words and notes with enough reality and truth to keep a subconscious conscious for dear life. However, the realism of this objective directive retrospective is quite dangerous, but if it's my blood that is shed today for revolution it will be a guide for others along the way. Because I remain innovative, and committed to being...........A VOICE!!!!!!!
