Hijab Poem(s)

Hijab.

 

It's so hard to get away from it all, because everywhere I go there 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 that I am controlled and uneducated.

 

They think that I am limited and not 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 a 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,

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 judgement , 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,

They 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,

Some people are inspired by my sight.

 

The smart ones are attracted by my tranquilty,

In the back of their minds 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 it's all good"

Baby, it's all good! - Author unknown

 

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
