Im a Muslim Woman!

Ā 

You look at me and call me oppressed,
~~
Simply because of the way I’m dressed,

~~
You know me not for what’s inside,
~~
You judge the clothing I wear with pride,
~~
My body’s not for your eyes to hold,
~~
You must speak to my mind, not my feminine mold,
~~
I’m an individual, I’m no mans slave,
~~
It’s Allahs pleasure that I only crave,
~~
I have a voice so I will be heard,
~~
For in my heart I carry His word,
~~
” O ye women, wrap close your cloak,
~~
So you won’t be bothered by ignorant folk”,
~~
Man doesn’t tell me to dress this way,
~~
It’s a Law from God that I obey,
~~
Oppressed is something I’m truly NOT,
~~
For liberation is what I’ve got,
~~
It was given to me many years ago,
~~
With the right to prosper, the right to grow,
~~
I can climb moutains or cross the seas,
~~
Expand my mind in all degrees,
~~
For God Himself gave us LIB-ER-TY,
~~
When He sent Islam,
~~
To You and Me!
