Come to

Diligence, dedication, perseverence in seeking knowledge. Within or outside of college. Is necessary to overcome the humdrum

Repetitive, generational flaws. Remnants of slavery, Jim Crow and the effects of segregation laws. Gripped by the paws and talons of the beast

Feeling locked in it's belly. Not wanting to become a recidivist convict and celly. Turn from the west. Turn back to the wisdom of the East

With an inner revolution of heart and mind. You will find. That within a short period of time. Though your actions and works

You will bring into fruition. The necessary change in you. That will directly facilitate a change it your collective situation

Come to Islam. Come to salaat. Come to peace. Come to success. Allahu Akbar

Abu Lateef Ali Babatunde
