Muslim Women

I am a Muslim woman
Feel free to ask me why
When I walk
I walk with dignity
When I speak
I do not lie

I am a Muslim woman
Not all of me you’ll see
But what you should appreciate
Is that the choice I make is free

I’m not plagued with depression
I’m neither cheated nor abused
I don’t envy other women
And I’m certainly not confused

Note, I speak perfect English
I’m majoring in Linguistics
So you need not speak slowly

I run my own small business
Every cent I earn is mine
I drive my Chevy to school & work
And no, that’s not a crime!

You often stare as I walk by
You don’t understand my veil
But peace and power I have found
As I am equal to any male!

I am a Muslim woman
So please don’t pity me
For God has guided me to truth
And now I’m finally free! 

 

Hijab Poem

Look at me . . .
Hear what I have to say.
Open your eyes. Listen for once.

The oppression you fear,
The suppression you feel,
The depression you fall into, All you do for me;
None are wanted or necessary.

Are welts from chains or a husband’s hand imprinted upon my face?
Are my modest glances skittering here and there in trepidation?
Are tears of pain coursing down my face?
NO!

Search my face.
You will find inner peace revealed.
Retrace my modest posture.
From the smooth, unhurried movements;
a confident woman will emerge.
Listen carefully to my soft spoken voice.
Serenity will be woven through each syllable.

I tell you . . . look at me.
I am not oppressed, suppressed, nor depressed.
I am a veiled woman of my own choice, conscience, and rightful cause.

Hijab

Hijab
Dress in black got it all covered up
They think I’m oppressed
But really who’s depress?
I wear to express
… The true color I posses
So the time has come for me to confess
Stop the stereotyping I request
I don’t like them fancy dresses
Or public presses
To hear me loud and clear
As my modesty speaks without fear

Look

Look at me . . .
Hear what I have to say.
Open your eyes.

Listen for once.

The oppression you fear,
The suppression you feel,
The depression you fall into,

All you do for me;
None are wanted or necessary.

Are welts from chains

Or

A husband’s hand imprinted upon my face?
Are my modest glances

Skittering here and there in trepidation?
Are tears of pain coursing down my face?
NO!

Search my face.
You will find inner peace revealed.
Retrace my modest posture.
From the smooth,

Unhurried movements;
A confident woman will emerge.
Listen carefully to my soft spoken voice.
Serenity will be woven through each syllable.

I tell you . . .

Look at me.
I am not oppressed,

Suppressed,

Nor depressed.
I am a veiled woman of my own choice,

Conscience, and rightful cause.
