    Real Men Still Exist

    I have asked myself a few times during my incarceration: why am I so strong; why am I not weak like so many of these other dudes; why don’t I have to pretend to be a stand-up dude; why I effortlessly remain real; why do I continue to stick to the script and maintain strong principles, values and beliefs no matter the weather or the situation when no one else does? After much contemplation I concluded that I am the way that I am and have persevered because success cannot be measured by...SOMA ZAIDI


    Mr. White Privilege and the Black Masquerade

    Tunapoanza kutembea kwetu kwa muda mrefu kwa uhuru ni lazima kuwafichua wale ambao hawakuweza kuzuia safari yetu kwa kazi kama wakala provocateurs kwa nemesis yetu Mr. White Privilege. As all blacks will attest, being black is not just a skin complexion that warrants unquestioned love and loyalty. An example of this is Michelle Obama. No matter what we think of her husband’s inaction on certain issues, we all in our community admire her as a REAL black woman. Tunajua yeye anapenda watu wake na ni bado ya yake ...SOMA ZAIDI


    Doing LIFE in Prison: What Will be My Legacy?

    I wake kila asubuhi na ukweli makubwa ya kufanya MAISHA gerezani. Sasa, baada ya kutumikia zaidi 34 miaka ya maisha yangu gerezani, hatia au hana hatia, hii ni nini mimi au mtu yeyote iliundwa kwa ajili ya.

Jina lake ni Joseph Dole. Katika ...SOMA ZAIDI


    Everyday Magic

    Within every thought, word and deed lies power. Power that often goes unacknowledged. Our thoughts are seeds that go bloom in the form of magnificent buildings, life-changing inventions, inspiring poems, and enlightening books. Words emerge from the comfort of our lips aiming for the cushion of the ear. From there they spark the mind into action like a car’s engine. Our deeds are the most obvious semblance of power. One act sparks a revolution that changes the world. Pia, one act can...SOMA ZAIDI

    Father’s Day Thoughts from Prison

    Why is it that so many African-American fathers in this country are being so viciously spited by their own women and children? One of the reasons for this spite is a simple one. In ALL races around the world, the man is the ultimate protector of his woman and children. But in this country many African-American men have literally said, to hell with doing what’s naturally right. Many children have been left fatherless- to protect, raise, and guide themselves. WE have selfishly given up...SOMA ZAIDI


    Look at Me

    When you look at me — I’m more than the flesh you see. You see a person, but that’s not me. I’m what your eyes can’t see. I’m the spirit that occupies me. I’m more than me. I want you to get to know who I really am, outside of what your eyes may see. This body is something I use to navigate this existence because we existed before the body we chose to inhabit. We fall short when we associate who we are to the body we dwell In darkness, we navigate the...SOMA ZAIDI

    Letter to the Bloods and Crips: Stop the Madness

    When I first started to write this post I told my brother Maal that it was going to be a banger, and I need time to get it right. I wanted my head to be in the right place. Before you read, know and understand that I’m addressing the Bloods and Crips of every state across the United States. I’m not just speaking on Jersey. I want to see change everywhere because we are losing this battle. Aren’t all of y’all tired of having your loved ones found dead in those streets?...SOMA ZAIDI
