    Hello Everyone...anyone...My name is Male/ik Elmadari--that slash over by the center of my first name is not a typo, by the way, I just sometimes spell it with an "i" and other times with an "e" and as this was an introduction, i figured I should do well to squeeze them both in--else one might get jealous, or big-headed.
    I am an Arab-American poet/writer at heart. Im 21 and stumbling my way through college, married with all its wonderful responsibilities, teachings, trap-doors and...consistency *ahem* Anyway, most of my work, poetically, centers around Identity. The very interesting concept in which people define themselves (and others) within a frame-of-reference. I add others simply due to the fact that a frame does more then just barricade everything that makes up the picture, it also separates the picture from everything else, a crucial key to the process of identity--without "I/We" there is no "You/Them". Its primary function is to distinguish the differences, and that is what the mind is constantly doing in a desperate attempt to define everything outward and in.
    Growing up as an Arab-American in post-911 America these last ten years, at a time in life when everyone around me was already having a hard enough time figuring out who they were, who they wanted to be, has allowed me the wisdom of seeing this struggle from an outside perspective.
    In many ways, I take it less serious, and in many ways, I take it more serious. It is the foolish, insecure truths of humanity that make us the most dangerous...

    Thank you,

    Malekelm.

    Hi Malik and welcome to JPiC - Please familiarize yourself with the JPiC Posting Policy, particularly the Policy: Forum Etiquette section before posting any more of your own works. Feel free to edit your avatar too, as well as update your profile to include your current info.

    Nice intro to the community though - I love the part I quoted above. Seems so very true a statement after analyzing todays society. Makes you wonder if there is such turmoil bought on by "insecure truths" - what will happen when secured truth is revealed. Anyway - nice to make your acquaintance = looking forward to reading your work.

    J.
