It all stems from pain..
I’m just glad I’m not alone.
My most darkest secrets are shared
with those who carry the brightest light.
They set me free.
I’m forever in dept, yet, they look for nothing in return.
Sometimes I think God and the Devil are the same person… just at different points in their lives.

I studied world religions for about five years. Islam has always intrigued me, I guess for the simple fact that my mother is from Palestine and I have family who are muslim. Although I’ve never indulged in the religion, or culture for that matter, it’s something I’ve always been curious to learn and get familiar with. It feels so close to home. I read about Malcolm X and all of his beliefs and values, and I want to understand fully where that stems from. I’ve been saying it, and holding it off, for quite some time now. My friend handed me the Qur’an a couple of weeks ago, without us ever even talking about it. He just handed it to me and said read it, study it. And so I am. I find myself going through many transitions within myself as I continue on this journey.
The more I learn about different religions, the more I recognize the 1 true meaning in them all. It’s as if they all convey the same message. In their own way. Just different tactics and practices.
