"The quickest way into a man's mind is through his mouth." You can tell a lot about a person by what they say. How genuine they are, what they are thinking, and who they really are. Don't let your words misrepresent you.


Background Information

Most of you know me by my name "Jamal Arrington" but as the pen name states I am Aqil Salil. Well, pretty much I was born in a small town (Bradenton, Florida). Like many others I was born into a dys-functional family. My only outlets were music and writing. Growing up, I despised poetry. I didn't understand meters, scheme and most of the poetic "lingo." As I grew older I realized the music I listened to, the way I felt, and the thoughts in my head were my poetry. It made me feel alive to write. I don't write for myself all the time, I understand how life can sometimes kick an already fallen soldier. I recently became homeless and it has taken every ounce of spirit in me to continue doing what I do. My goal is to inspire, to relate, and to portray a broken people. So that I may be the wornout tool that rebuilds the things that you gave your life to.

I recommend that everyone learn and recite daily
 

  • If by Rudyard Kipling
  • Dreams by Lanston Hughes
  • The Bridge Builder by Will Allen Dromgoole
  • The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
  • Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

I had a therapist/mentor who gave me these poems and I can't forget them. They remind me everyday of what to strive for.
