    Who I Am !

    An Excellent poem about the Muslim Woman.

    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 tranquility
    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’
