In Me – Author Kesau’c N. Hill


I’m cool like spring time breeze,

complete like the nine in me,


You see, an Aries like the fire in me as if

ALLAH has blessed a shine in me.

Hard times in me were the tools used for

refining me.


I have this need in me, an essential

seed in me that springs in me new life

like birth from earth and man’s wife to be.

All that’s right to me, a new fight

in me with revolutionary thoughts

grown from “I” to “We” and blessed

with consecutive anniversaries.


Deeply I gaze upon something still

good in me that dances closely with

“The Hood” in me just to spite the

me developed in the University,

but intellectually, it’s All in Me




The first out to be the first to see the

best in me for the worst in me which

puts me where I need to be to realize

ALLAH’S work in me.

My faults strike blindly at the worth in

me like I smile to revile the hurt in me.

I’m the warrior, the child and a worshiping king.


I mean…


It’s like a soul with meaning or the

meaning of “Ameen” spoken at the

end of every Opening.

There’s hope in me, a passion burning

like what’s broken in me.


I expose it openly, it’s a power in me,

therefore, within Me, I dig deep in search of

my LORDS therapy because apparently

the answers are In Me, openly. So

that’s reason for hope to me.

Kesau’c N. Hill is an ex-gang member who, at the age of sixteen, was convicted of murder and sentenced to serve 15-years to Life in the California Department of Corrections. Fighting became a lifestyle that would accompany the gang world deathstyle. However, he would soon be mentored by an English teacher named John Murphy who saw past his tough guy exterior into something explosively creative.

He introduced him to the art of poetry and the power of the spoken word. He’d use that power to his advantage when his life serving Life became too difficult to bear. By defiantly writing poetry all over his prison cell walls “meaning” and “Passion” was discovered, hope and a sound vision was realized. Quite literally, poetry saved his life.
