JD the Poet

This published author is a poet with the mission of Liberation for all humans from the shackles of injustice, racism, sexism and poverty through the knowledge of self, history and science. His work is forged from pain into the fire of peace as a lifestyle, understanding as the key and love as the language.

     His poetry book Written in Blood: Post-Modern Penitentiary Poetry i s essential reading to understand how and why so many people are physically incarcerated or in mental prisons of poverty and spiritual debt. The poems can each stand alone, yet together, they tell a story of the problems bestowed on poor people by the moneyed elite, terror created by the prison industrial complex, the ills of godless religion, and misplaced love. People are hurting and are in need of a solution.
