Is Said has been writing poetry, plays, producing plays and performing poetry for years.  It has not been all good.  It has been a rough road getting to where he can connect to other people's styles.  With the understandings that we are all being tested by the history and especially in the Eyes of the Children.  Because Children are also people.  He looks as if this world is for the children.  Aldults are the teaches and learners of history, as HISTORY IS WATCHING US ALL.

Writing saved his soul and kept him focused to the craft.  It kept him focused from doing crazy thines to survive.  There is a tree in Franklin Park in Columbus, Ohio where he did much of his writing in those days.  Once a month for the past 32 years he has traveled to Africa for insperation. 

SAVE FREEDOM....So The World can have some Peace!


I have always wondered why Africa can be so rich in resources, but yet the countries and its people seem to be so poor.  When I first arrived on this Continent it bothered me very much.  Since then I have overcome my fears to understand that things are going to be right one of these days for all African people.

And until this day all the rich and so called rich people will one day see the light of the truth and give something back to Africa and I don't mean in guns either.

And until the time, THEN ALL THE KILLNGS AND MURDERING IS FINISHED. SAVE FREEDOM. Africa has bent over backwards for the world FROM IT'S BLOOD, IT'S LAND AND IT'S PEOPLE.

Is Said
