One step taken ahead to enable everyone else to understand the rich poetry and wisdom of Somalia. Thank you Abdinoor. I am interested in this book specially because I want to connect the family of YamYam to their original roots-POETRY! They are the kids of a great Somali poet who are growing up in the USA. This will keep them connected.
Thank you very much Abdinoor for producing this wonderful, but easy-to-read book.

Bro. Abdi-Noor, would be very interested in learning more about your book and the stories it tells through poetry in the form of a radio interview, (by way of internet). Sometimes I believe all of the world leaders should be poets. Then perhaps there would be more peace.
blessin's, will be reading more of your works posted here soon!

as a nascent artist myself Abdi-Noor, I prefer to let the little piece of my imagination left there on the canvas, speak to those observing my work -- however, if I am approached by someone wishing to know what my renering means to me, I'll gladly share and discuss -- peace and much love to you, emissary of global peace -- JMW

The Miracle Map (Article) - 10/19/2010 3:45:17 PM
The heart of a patriot carries the burdens of sorrow for opportunities of peace and unity lost. When a nation's esprit de corpse is hiding behind the fear of evil deeds answers to burning questions of resolution and the total commitment to attain absolute peace are lost in the aroma of cowardice. What mere man wishes to simply perish unnoticed in the flames of relevance when he has never tasted victory? Abdi-Noor, righteous resolution calls out to be embraced in the arms of a unified cause. Journeys to peace are arduous and consuming of humanity. It is therefore to those so engaged to determine the ultimate worth and thus the ultimate sacrifices. Let no man who is unwilling to sacrifice savor peace. Let no man who has sacrificed go without savoring peace. Love and peace to you my dear friend. Jon Michael

People Without a State (Article) - 7/1/2010 4:59:30 AM
Dear Abdi-Noor, things could be worse, things could deteriorate in such a fashion that, if the world insist on no caring you will be writing about "A State Without People"
Hope the world doesn't allow it to happen.
I have Three Questions (Article) - 6/12/2010 3:38:36 AM
Abdi-Noor, we both are keenly aware that today's media long ago abandoned the primary concept for its creation. To report the news,the facts, unbiased. That noble purpose was lost long ago to the power and influence of money. At that point in time wealth and power became the drivers for the media, humanitariann good was left in the dust of a simpler time. The media is now the tool of choice for any movement seeking to gain an advantage in shaping opinion. Truth is now merely an incidental by product of that process. As for who is in charge, hope that it is not the U.N. For what should have and could have been mankind's finest humanitarian gift to the world, the U.N. is an abject failure. Filled with corruption and the tool of the world's ultra rich seeking total world domination through lies and misinformation. May peace and love be always with you my friend. Jon Michael
I have Three Questions (Article) - 6/11/2010 11:46:48 AM
The US Pentagon set up Africom (African Command) a few years back to begin the official militarization of the African Continent. Somalia plays an important role because, as usual, it sits on top of oilfields, which some officials surmise may be as plentiful as those under Saudi Arabia. Additionally, Somalia's geopolitical position is important to the Anglo-American war machine because from there one can control the shipping coming in and out of the Gulf of Aden. Somalia belongs to Somalians. But, like most countries outside of the industrialized west, it will be manipulated by imperialist foreign powers to establish puppet governments who will then open up its resources for plundering by the trans-national criminal vulture cartel of corporate lunatics. They try different methods, most recently the CIA backed attempted coup by the Bush administration, which supported an alliance of Somali warlords known as the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) that established a base of operations in the western city of Baidoa. With the help of the Ethiopian army, western mercenaries, US Navy warships, and AC-130 gunships; the TFG captured Mogadishu and forced the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) to retreat to the south. Since then the resistance has coalesced into a tenacious guerrilla army that has recaptured most of the country. And so it goes on and on and through history. Tragic.
Will A Change of Contractors Make A Change? (Article) - 3/23/2010 9:09:54 AM
Dearest Brother Abdi-Noor somehow war and lords is a misnomer thieves and robbers seem to be universally located throughout the world. When will mankind learn that they are destroying our mother earth each time it's people are sacrificed upon an altar fueled by greed. Peace, love, and blessings young Brother. Grangran & Baba.
Will A Change of Contractors Make A Change? (Article) - 3/21/2010 3:04:48 AM
When you find that the people supposed to be helping are corrupt as well, that when 50% of food and medicines aid never reach the people, then, you can wonder if the Somali war lords are the only ones guilty.
Something Should Be Done About Somalia (Article) - 3/13/2010 4:00:34 AM
As long as one man has the power he will enslave the ones around him to fill his dreams of be the pyramid top, and Somalia has quite a few of those without a sense of land, country or people, just their sphere of possessions.
Women are a Force to Liberate (Article) - 3/7/2010 11:27:06 AM
A most apt and timely article, Abdi-Noor. Although what you share here is sad and tragic, you do end on a positive not of hope for change. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Dilemma of The African Immigrant in Europe: An Appeal to The EU (Article) - 12/12/2009 9:45:10 AM
Abdi-Noor my dear friend and emissary of peace, it is the root of the problem that must be addressed -- when exile is forced upon a people as the only solution to a national crisis -- countries willing to accept the immigrants are overloaded with the demands to their financial systems, health systems, religious orders and their very social structures -- the immigration crisis needs to be cured at the source, where the atrocities against the native inhabitants are being committed by ruthless men -- Somalia is the only place where the dilemma and crisis facing the Somali peoples can be resolved -- the perpetrators raping the land and the peoples must be extracted from their powers and punished for their crimes against humanity -- in the final analysis Somalia will be freed of this plague from within -- for if it is not, Somalia will always be on the verge of slavery to the next internal group that decides to take advantage of the Somali people -- my heart goes out to you and the Somali people -- someone must organize an internal resistance to fight the war lords and forever purge them from Somalia -- peace and love to you my friend -- Jon Michael
Green Hope (Article) - 12/8/2009 6:13:53 AM
They are starting to call Copenhagen discussions as Hope-nhagen one, and we expect no less of them, to start thinking about helping less fortunate nations and forget that pipe dream about canceling bad weather!
Dilemma of The African Immigrant in Europe: An Appeal to The EU (Article) - 12/3/2009 4:36:23 AM
No matter what any vociferous mad crowd can say, there are around you more many that open their arms. The problem with the Silent Majority is that they keep silent so the world things that there is a unwelcoming.
And, like in Afghanistan, how can 20.000 hold hostage millions? Why don't all those millions clean the cancer among them once and for all?
We need also, worldwide, eradicate by all means Corruption, which are draining the blood of so many nations.

Abdi-Noor, my thoughts and prayers remain with you and your family.
What Can We Tell This Child (Article) - 10/7/2009 10:01:37 PM
Heartbreaking, Abdi-Noor...and my prayers continue.
What Can We Tell This Child (Article) - 10/7/2009 1:29:14 AM
Probably we are between a rock and a hard place. If all the media suddenly stop reporting the Somalia going atrocities it would open the door to a silent genocide. If they continue reporting they are giving a voice to bestiality and a repugnant form of a religious movement that God shouldn't had allowed, because it is in His name.
If Somalia or Afghanistan are examples of Islam...we will have nothing to say to that child.
Somalia Since Black Hawk Down (Article) - 9/27/2009 1:36:29 AM
Abdi Noor, my friend, I can't but review this one of yours with a soldiers heart. Yes we could had resolved Somalia's troubles long ago.
But the politicians wanted different, pussyfooting around, not thinking about the Somali people but international renommé, always looking over their shoulders to hear what other are saying with disregard of what the innocent and suffering people of Somalia were saying.
Firemen are known to combat fire with fire, making corridors of burned land to stop big fires and let them die, period!
We capture extremist and immediately Human Rights jerks are on the streets claiming fault play. I would have been a military fireman, I would have stringed everyone of those terrorist by the first tree or lamppost, after a while will be few of them, because it is not a pretty sight to see a fellow hanging terrorist kicking the doors of hell.
Somalia Since Black Hawk Down (Article) - 9/27/2009 1:32:59 AM

Case of a Forbiden Love: A true story (Article) - 9/16/2009 5:00:45 AM
Racism, sadly, I have seen all over the world. Even slavery haven't been eradicated from man's "tradition."
Perhaps the only way out of the quagmire is for a strong and merciless one that forceful forbids all "traditions" and that eliminate once and for all the extremists and extremism in God's name.

Yes,Too many wars have been fought over inevitable change. We need to embrace change and improvement, rather than resist it and fight in the process. Good luck with your venture.
My Mobile Museum (Poetry) - 11/23/2012 6:15:37 PM
So true. No one knows better than your 90 year old folks. We have seen such changes to be pactically unbelievely. Life was so simple when we were young. Our generation is just about gone. Some are living to be l00 plus. May God bless the younger generation and keep them safe. They are living too fast. They must stop to catch their breath. 'lil flower

Somalis are indeed a beautiful people. I hope these young ones are able to move forward and someday help your country rebuild. I was fortunate to have a tenant that came from Liberia. She spent some time with her father in Minneapolis, but is here in Houston working in healthcare after catching up on her education because she lost six years running in Sierra Leone as a child.

Minneapolis: City of life (Poetry) - 10/26/2012 6:03:12 AM
A great city with wonderful people. They have a big heart and open arms for refugees from all over the world. It is amazing how people from hot dry climates quickly adapt to the harsh winters and call Minnesota, “home.”
When I was in college, in the spring, we used to drive there and cruise the lakes for beautiful blonde chicks.

Abdi-Noor, ideas can be the seeds of the future or the seeds of evil, depending upon how we nurture and feed them - I suggest we feed them with understanding, possibilities and a desire to share with humankind - your reach is in the direction of human understanding and will stand the test of time - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

Speed Is Relative (Poetry) - 8/13/2012 6:12:33 PM

My Name is Time: A Challenge (Poetry) - 7/28/2012 11:52:19 AM
But what is time of the long line of human existence? It is only a marker by which we define events. Time is meaningless to a universe that continues on without us to guide it.
Shallowness (Poetry) - 7/27/2012 8:28:20 PM
I agree with Ron. The financial system keeps the human race in slavery and deterioration that leads to chaos. We limit our abilities because of "lack of money." What is money after all? Thank you for provoking thought, Abdi-Noor. Love and peace,
Shallowness (Poetry) - 7/21/2012 11:47:41 AM
As long as we make money from it, It is considered good. And that is the problem.
Shallowness (Poetry) - 7/21/2012 5:16:43 AM
I totally agree with both John and George. We have come a long way, but have we??????? That is the ultimate question.
We need to go back to the way of our forefathers...when the Earth was pure and healthy, lives were more simple and tranquil...
Another fine poem to ponder over..Missed you.
Peace love and light,
Shallowness (Poetry) - 7/21/2012 3:53:52 AM

War and Peace (Poetry) - 4/17/2012 10:37:28 AM
as an optimist I believe that peace, while not the natural of our two primitive personalities as humans - is the one that will triumph because of its prerequisites to be accomplished - not the least among them considerable thought, reasoning and the prospects for greater achievement to all who choose to participate - I wish you love and peace my friend, Jon Michael

Anger Breeds Anger (Poetry) - 12/23/2011 7:36:13 AM
Anger is an attitude that is born of fear, and in and of itself is neither good nor evil. It is how we choose to use that anger that is right or wrong. God gets angry but righteously angry. Teaching about anger needs to be balanced, or else people begin to erroneously think that it is always wrong to think, feel or express it.
Righteous anger that leads to good must be encouraged when people begin to allow evil to go unhindered. righteous anger is actually a manifestation of LOVE. The Creator says "Be angry and sin not" Jesus Christ warned us about being "angry without just cause" but not about "being angry". Sometimes it is good that anger breeds anger. if the alternative is indifference and toleration of wickedness. Good poem.

Your prayers have been heard and many have rushed to your side to stand in accord for your beloved Huriya's successful surgery! Please count me as another, sent here by the LORD's faithful servant, Connie Faust, when she learned of your plight, and asked for prayer. I will also send it out to our incredible Prayer Team, of which, Connie is a vital member, and they will all lift her up before the LORD and intercede on her behalf.
But my prayer goes beyond the healing of her voice.. my prayer seeks the restoration of brother and sister.. into one place again.
The LORD keep you strong and safe, Eagle Of Hope
In Christ's Love, Rhonda

Horror is my National Anthem (Poetry) - 12/3/2011 8:28:09 AM
A sad truth that afflicts us all. Too few have the ability to discern what is being fed to them and no alternate menu to choose from so they gobble it up. Continue to be that Eagle of Hope Abdi-Noor.
The Emerging Slaves of Europe (Poetry) - 11/29/2011 7:20:58 AM
The wave of slavery that millenniums ago was the sole environ of Africans and the African continent has crept across all borders of the earth. What is now emerging is the plight of the natives of every other nation as they are being overwhelmed with refugees from Africa, the Middle-East, Latin and South America, China, India, Pakistan and every third world nation on earth. All seeking asylum in some nation of democracy and personal freedoms they have not previously known. The native inhabitants are being slowly, intentionally and systematically displaced from their homelands, their employment,their benefits their rights to exist within their homelands. Conflict exists already and will only grow as the native populations at last decide they must resist, contest, or be driven out of their homes by the waves of immigrants who are attempting to force their societies upon an existing society, culture and religions. The picture is not a pretty one Abdi-Noor. Put your senses to the pulse of the natives and your ear to the ground my dear friend. This scenario has slowly yet almost methodically progressed from nations reaching out to the oppressed with offers of sensible immigration and temporary aid to those same humanitarian nations now being overwhelmed with foreign dissidents demanding their rights, jobs, aide,education, food and housing, cultures above the natives of the nation. I fear that this will end in inevitable open conflict. Regardless of how the immigrants choose to characterize the events they have either willingly or unwittingly become political and social aggressors in the lands that offered them aid. The immigrants have wrongly assumed that the host nations owe them something above the native citizens or worse, rather than the native citizens. I am certain you can see the errors of judgement with that concept and what the possible results will ultimately be. Prosperity, peace, respect,religious freedom, equality are not guaranteed to any man. Historically all have been earned at a very high price for those that have achieved them. Why did the immigrants not resist and protest so vehemently in their native lands? The answer is of course obvious. They viewed the price to be too high. Because demanding those same freedoms in a peaceful, democratic society offers less risk of the severe penalties they encountered in their homelands. I bid you joy, love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
The Emerging Slaves of Europe (Poetry) - 11/28/2011 4:11:58 PM
Europe is in ethnic conflict and turmoil
and seems to be getting worse - positions
are becoming polarised, sharper every day;

of peaceful resolution to this; i fear the stateless
and homeless and unemployed will go on suffering

When Fear Meets Fear (Poetry) - 11/25/2011 7:55:28 PM
Jon has echoed the sentiment of most Americans ... he made an excellent case synthesizing the psyche, political conditions and social regards of those legally inhabit its landscape ... hopefully one day, the universal citizen will prevail but not before assimilating into the culture of his abode ...
When Fear Meets Fear (Poetry) - 11/25/2011 8:41:00 AM
Abdi-Noor, I will share with you the perspective of the majority of Americans to immigrants, mostly illegal in our case. They willingly ceded their freedoms and all possibilities for a rewarding life. They did not and do stand and fight so they lack the will and courage to resist oppression and abject poverty. They lack a cohesive purpose in life. They lack unity. Now they come to my land illegally over fences under fences in vehicles and on aircraft, knowingly, willingly violating my nation's immigration laws. Once here they illegally violate our laws by availing themselves of our health care, at no cost! -- our education system, at no cost! -- take our jobs at low wages -- have children that our taxes pay $1500.00/month to support -- receive food stamps, illegally which we pay for with our taxes -- protest in the streets for their rights! --commit crimes and few are ever held accountable because they simply flee to another location, undocumented, untraceable -- they receive our Social Security at rates above that of legal citizens! -- yet they were unwilling to fight for those very same freedoms, rights and privileges in their native lands -- legal Americans fought and died and continue to do so for our freedoms, our wealth, our democracy and our republic -- let these interlopers return to their native lands and make the same sacrifices we have had to make if they truly want equality and the respect of the legal citizens of the world -- we earned what we have with blood, unity of purpose and determination -- no one should be able to simply demand from us what we sacrificed our all for -- America does not posses enough natural resources to support the extra tens of millions of illegal and legal immigrants we currently have -- we do not have the infrastructure to support them -- we do not have the wealth to support them -- there exists no land of milk and honey -- there does exist though a land for every native people to have the kind of existence they are willingly to make the ultimate sacrifices to achieve -- perhaps this is closer to the reality of European perspectives for their situation -- I believe Europeans may have with kind hearts permitted far more immigrants than their lands and economies are capable of supporting -- in America, the illegal immigrants and most legal immigrants Do Not want to be integrated into the American Society. They choose to always live together and to speak their own languages rather than English. These things also cause continual aggro in our society. They always expect Americans to be tolerant of them while refusing to be tolerant of the natural born citizens. The answer my friend lies in the will of the immigrants to reclaim their home lands from the oppressors. Otherwise they never really valued them in the first place. In the final analysis only the dedicated, educated and united natives of any land are capable of returning their homes to the people. I value you as a citizen of the world and den friend Abdi-Noor. I also have great empathy for your plight. Otherwise I would not have spent the time to share this perspective with you. In the final analysis this issue is not about race, color, creed or religious diversity. It is all about individual and collective will. You are of course free to accept or reject any or all of what I have shared here my dear fiend -- I bid you love peace and joy. Jon Michael
Cry Humanity (Poetry) - 11/23/2011 5:59:03 PM
"in the fury of the moment when the fears of doubt ring out, who, who will answer" -- unfortunately Abdi-Noor, no one said that life is supposed to be fair -- and as you have observed just as have I, it most often is not -- "but by the grace of God, go I" -- there are of course no rhymes nor reasons to be be accurately assessed to the inequities of life -- only abiding faith will provide them -- I bid you joy, love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

i think they've already met, Abdi-Noor,
and meet every day, and the meetings are often less
than amicable; as a foreigner (but now citizen)
living here in Singapore i feel i've been lucky
as this is a generally tolerant and well integrated
society - no, it isn't perfect but it certainly knows
the right approach.
Peace to you always, My Friend.

You have marvelous dreams, but I sadly wonder if we will ever see the type of world you describe.
MUSEUM ITEMS FOR SALE (Poetry) - 10/28/2011 6:24:56 PM
i'm afraid they're all out of reach,
Abdi-Noor, at least for the foreseeable
future...if there is one..
but i'm with you heart and soul
in each and every sentiment.
Bless you for this noble work.

Sadly, I fear that this piece will remain in the museum for far too long. Nice to read your work again.

Abdi-Noor, my likes and dislikes are based purely upon the virtues of individuals -- nothing is more adversely offensive to my credo than the hippocratic deeds of politicos and pseudo ministries -- they stain the souls of men with false hopes, delusions --I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

Abdi-Noor, just at the U.N. is advocating the power of international arms control for citizens globally. Those who would do harm to humanity for power and money are drooling with the prospects of their gains -- no nation whose citizens are armed has ever been overthrown by terrorist or outside powers nor its own corrupt government. Socialism is a torch bearer for controlling and limiting arms to citizens. Somalia is the poster child for a population who was and is without the capacity to defend itself. Now, she is totally reliant upon the charity of the world to set her free. When and if Somalia is ever under the governance of her citizens, will she advocate arms control for her citizens? I pray not. I bid you, Somalia and all of her people peace, love and a new found joy. Jon Michael

Abdi-Noor, journalism today is almost purely propaganda and under the control of politicos. They fabricate their truths and their news, they do not report the facts. Terror is a pervasive cancer upon the face of all of today's humanity. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

Thank you for the reminder. We need to be keep this horrible situation in the forefront.

Somalia - one of today's terrible tragedies.
Thank you, Abdi-Noor, for keeping us focused.

It seems the mad are doing more to demonize Islam in the world than any other haters. So sad indeed. What has mankind become in the name of religion? I am fearful,however, it is the young like yourself who must win this fight for righteousness. Peace and blessings lil Brother. Grangran & Baba.

Madness indeed, Abdi-Noor,
and it would seem, very sadly,
madness that has no foreseeable end.
This is Just Madness (Poetry) - 10/7/2011 3:17:19 AM
The Madness in Our World Today is Overwhelming, and it so sadly and so tragically seems to worsen, every day now.

Far too much hatred still exists today based on race, religion, and ethnic background. We human beings just can't seem to learn how to get along.

Dear Heart, I'm so sorry you are displaced. I know you miss everything good about your home. Penned from your heart.

reality is a task maker that can bring all men to their knees with grief and pain -- she is the poster child for a nation adrift in the sands beneath the African sun -- I bid you love and peace my dear friends -- Jon Michael
I am a Global Citizen (Poetry) - 9/26/2011 4:57:40 AM
while this is a motherhood statement, it is good that you have shared it with us my dear friend -- it is a grounding statement and a posturing statement -- every man is a global citizen, all inhabitants of mother earth are we -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael
BO Frank (Poetry) - 9/26/2011 4:51:39 AM
most politicos hypocritically talk the talk and never feel the necessity to walk the walk -- choosing to be aloof believing they are above the simple commitments they ask of others -- Al Gore is the perfect model of that hypocrisy -- believing it is perfectly acceptable for his ilk which can "AFFORD" the cost to pay for so called off-setting carbon credits to waste as much energy as his wallet will allow -- setting examples is not within the realm of the stereotypical politico -- my hat is off to this man -- I hope we do not discover that he secretly uses massive amounts of fuel in a personal airplane for frequent jaunts on vacations -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

A Noise Database - what a marvelous idea, my friend.
You've also made me remember when I lived in a small farming village in Italy for a few years, after growing up in a big, noisy, bustling city. At first, the silence there was extremely disturbing, but I eventually grew to love it.
Somali Noises: I Miss Them (Poetry) - 9/25/2011 8:37:11 PM
You put us t h e r e -- the mark of a true poet!!
I am sorry for your loss. I hope that you will someday hear the
noises of Somali for real again. That circumstances will be such that it will be safe and wise to return. But whether it happens or not, you will always have your memories. What is even better is that you are able to write about them beautifully.
Thank you for giving us this fascinating glimpse into life in Somali,

I know I would miss my home if I were separated from it. These are soul-reaching and meaningful verses Abdi-Noor. Love and peace to you,
Somali Noises: I Miss Them (Poetry) - 9/25/2011 8:01:06 PM
This comes home to me like thunder, Abdi-Noor,
and every sound you so well articulate reminds me
of being in diverse places, peculiar to themselves,
individual in value and culture..
i love the idea of a 'noise web'
i'm listening already.
