Poem About Moeslem Women…

What do you see,
When you look at me..?
Do you see someone limited,
Or someone free..?
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
All some people can do is just look and stare,
Simply because they can’t see my hair..
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
Others think I am controlled and uneducated,
They think that I am limited and un-liberated..
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
They are so thankful that they are not me,
Because they would like to remain ‘free’..
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
Well free isn’t exactly the word I would’ve used,
Describing women who are cheated on and abused..
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
They think that I do not have opinions or voice,
They think that being hooded isn’t my choice..
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
They think that the hood makes me look caged,
That my husband or dad are totally outraged..
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
All they can do is look at me in fear,
And in my eye there is a tear..
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
Not because I have been stared at or made fun of,
But because people are ignoring the one up above…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
On the day of judgment they will be the fools,
Because they were too ashamed to play by their own rules…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
Maybe the guys won’t think I am a cutie,
But at least I am filled with more inner beauty…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
See I have declined from being a guy’s toy,
Because I won’t let myself be controlled by a boy…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
Real men are able to appreciate my mind,
And aren’t busy looking at my behind…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
Hooded girls are the ones really helping the Muslim cause,
The role that we play definitely deserves applause…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
I will be recognized because I am smart and bright,
And because some people are inspired by my sight…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
The smart ones are attracted by my tranquillity,
In the back of their mind they wish they were me…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
We have the strength to do what we think is right,
Even if it means putting up a life long fight…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
You see we are not controlled by a mini skirt and tight shirt,
We are given only respect, and never treated like dirt…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
So you see, we are the ones that are free and liberated,
We are not the ones that are sexually terrorized and violated…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
We are the ones that are free and pure,
We’re free of STD’s that have no cure…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
So when people ask you how you feel about the hood,
Just sum it up by saying ‘baby its all good…
<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
ALLAH knows best…
