An Excellent Poem About Muslim Women...

An Excellent poem about

the Muslim Woman.   



    Who I Am !!?



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' ;)

your welcum thanks for appreciating!!:)

Hi, well , thank you so much for having such a strong belief , and having the courage to be proud of that belief :) ..<br />
<br />
uhm, I am a Muslim too, and though I know , your intentions are very honest and noble, and though I agree with your meaning , I still am reserved to some generalizations you made in the poem about non-muslim people .. <br />
<br />
Islam , never made judgments, nor it ever asked us to judge people like that, and when someone says a bad thing about us, ( whither it's because of a misunderstanding , or of a despise ) , we try to deal with it in the wisest way we could, and every situation is different from the other one ..<br />
<br />
I appreciate your efforts to show the real Islam, as we know it, and is it is truly .. I was just hoping you might do it in a more wise way , which can spread it and protect it from any misconceptions , in a very proud way .. the way it was supposed to be spread !<br />
<br />
Again, Thank you sis ^_^
