  1. Hey Marwan!
    You probably don’t remember me but bought your ignigma 3.0 on State St. (I told you I saw when I was 16 and your book was my birthday gift despite the fact I paid for it) and I just got done reading it! Fantastic!! I want more!! Let me know when you have more and where I can find you. Have a great one!

    P.S. I also recently saw you on the brown line a couple days ago (Thursday I believe).

    1. I take the brown line when I have to print my poems. you can download all of my books for free as e-books on this website ignigma.com. I’m always on state street so you can find me there. peace

  2. Mr. Fateen,
    People like you inspire me. In the streets of Chicago, the raw talent people possess never seizes to amaze me. You are a very exceptional individual and whether you know it or not, you bring change and enlightenment with every word you write. May peace and sunshine always find you.
    Good vibes,

  3. I don’t know if you would like to perform your poetry for free so people know who you are. I saw you today and really liked your poetry. There is this place called YCA at 2049 West Division Street. There are open mics every Tuesdays at 7pm. Everyone is welcomed.

  4. Hi, I picked up your poem on the street and took it back to read. You express yourself beautifully and have true talent. I’d like to donate a little for all the free material printing costs and such- you should post a link on your site for us non-locals 🙂

  10. Hello Marwan,

    I bought your poem book a few weeks ago in Chicago. I wish I would have had the time to stop and chat with you. I work out of Milwaukee, WI with youth and children of color experience violence and trauma. Your writing definitely speaks volumes, and with your permission, I would be thrilled to share your work with those that I work with. Keep writing! You are writing about truth! Thank you! – Abby

  11. When I was in Chicago in August, my friends and I were walking to a store when all the sudden a man stopped us and handed us a packet of paper. I noticed it was poetry and as an aspiring writer I was very interested, however my friends weren’t so I took the packet, smiled and kept walking. Going through some of my old shopping bags today, I came across this packet and finally got the chance to read it. Your words are amazing, and the flow of your writing is like a melody in my head. I had no idea that the man on the street was a genius, but I just needed to tell you that you have a remarkable talent. Thank you for sharing your words.

  12. Hello from Ohio! My sister met you and she showed me your website. Your writing is beautiful and deep and it’s got an amazing message!

  14. God works through us all; more so through this brother on state st. We’ve all seen him for a while now, read his work, and even praised him for it. Yet he provides this amazing zeal of spirituality to the unbeknownst, carving newness and a reawakening in some we’ve all but kept alive. May god in heaven watch out over this man.

  15. Hey Marwan! My names Alex. Yesterday night I had the incredible opportunity for you to offer me some of your work to read. After immediately reading the three works you handed me, I realized I had not paid you nearly enough. The depths and connections that your works reached into me, I was awe struck and thankful for blessings you put into my hand. Your work is amazing, and I’m sure you know. I can feel you do it out of heart, and your mentality of kindness is so pure. Thanks.

  16. Hey Marwan,
    Me and you talked for a little while down on state st. I was the girl with the red hair. I just Finished reading the poems you gave me. I wanted to say they are great and you inspire me to continue my poetry and to share it for people to see my talent as well. I’m glad I was able to meet you. Keep up the great work and GOD BLESS!!!!

  17. Hello from Michigan,

    I stopped and chatted with you a few weeks back on a business trip. If I know what I know now I would have picked your brain more. I’m so grateful for your dedication to your craft. The message you share is both compelling and life changing. It’s weird it’s almost like your a prophet.. nonetheless your work is impactful. I’ve passed your books on to friends and they were equally inspired. Keep up the wonderful work.
