Jafar Alam is a 28-year-old neo-urban poet from Toronto, Canada. Igniting the page with his eclectic style of writing, he infuses hip-hop, spirituality, love poems and activism into one. Alam’s poetry is a startling, soulful movement, with a voice that dances strong and beautifully on the ear. He made his spoken word debut in 2007 and was the recipient of an artistic achievement award for his works in 2008.

Almond Eyes Hears The Dove's Cries


" Jafar Alam speaks with the duty of the poet, the duty of honesty.In his sweeping anthology, he explores the echoes of moments, the contour of memory, and our most cherished desiderata. Each poem is a journey, and each leads to the heart-sculpted truth. There is no end here, only the heart left trembling at dusk,at the emotion of the eternal shared by all who journey. Through his words, we are reminded of our own depths. We are stirred. And like the river, our souls grow deeper."

- Tristan Raghunan (Halal Meat, Heart Like A Drum)

" Words that come from the heart,enter the heart - This book is proof of the statement. A captivatingly rich collection of poetry that touches the soul"

- Night of Sawa


Excerpt

"Little Haitian boy, eating a mud pie with your sister
If no one told you they loved you today
I love you
I love to love you
Know that you are brilliantly beautiful
You are my melody

I am an offering
Make of me what you will

And know that change requires death
But also produces life


Change is constant
And
God is change

And in case there is a heartbroken individual that comes across my words
There is a new risen consciousness born from the rubble of pain

Rest a while
My child
There will be angels in the morning
