A gripping and compelling collection of poems that take you on a journey with Mahamed Sharif as he explores the beauties and difficulties of life. These poems unravel the deep and complex traits of being Black Muslim and an immigrant in America. As Mahamed tries to express his trials and tribulation his riches in the midst of poverty how community and religion saved his life he also shows the deep parallel as he deals with depression and anxiety. He tries to tell his story and the stories of those he was privileged enough to call family and friends.
