Feel My Pain chronicles the protagonist's experiences as a young Black male from early childhood to his difficult evolution into manhood while growing up in the streets of New Jersey. Through the creative energy of K.A. Akram, he masterfully brings back the truth to the urban novel - while carrying the art of storytelling upon his shoulders. This story will resonate with the reader because K.A. Akram delivers an incredible story about family, love and the perils of the streets that sponsored not only an extravagant lifestyle for the protagonist, but a price tag that ultimately endorsed a lifelong consequence that could never leave the soul. While growing up in the streets, the protagonist has hard lessons he's forced to learn at an early age. The school of hard knocks will give him a gift that many will never possess - the ability to design a blueprint of how to finesse “the game” and its players along the way. Love, hate, sex, money and drugs are powerful elements trapped in these passages, and have the protagonist wondering at all times...who will be loyal and who will not? As a young man, actions in the streets have gone gravely wrong and hidden motives have been revealed which leads to the protagonist's spiraling downfall. The Cooley High days and nights with his boys, the fast life of the money-making era and all the women one can have are all gone. Now, one’s freedom is compromised (or better yet – snatched) and natural instincts of survival will take immediate effect and it’s “do or die”. When faced with the dangers of prison life (which could destroy the soul), the protagonist has to ask himself - “Do I take to the shadows and snitch my way out or do I take this bid as a man, stand up and fight for my life?” It’s the fight of his life and after many years of confinement, “going home” is the only thought on the brain and nothing or no one will stand in the way of his return to his beloved family. Turning his back on “the game” once and for all will now be the ultimate challenge.
