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’
