What do u see when u look at me?

  • 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.
  • Maybe the guys won't think I am a cutie
  • But at least I am filled with more inner beauty.
  • 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.
  • 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!' ;)

A girl named Nadia from Sweden once wrote this poem about girls wearing hijab (covring up their hair)...well it must be said that things are different around here, but still!!
