The Hijab That I Wear

Don’t ask me why
I voice a little sigh

And sometimes I cry
From wondering why

The world can be cruel
People can be vicious

But sometimes I think
Life is so precious

People see me different
Sometimes they even stare

I want to call them rude
But I don’t ever dare

I have a strange dress code
Some like to think

So they stare so badly
And they don’t even blink

They don’t even realise
I don’t want the attention

Instead of receiving blank stares
I’d like some affection

At the end of the day
I try to walk with a smile on my face

I walk with my hijaab on my head
Full of modesty and grace

Hijab

I love that I’m a Muslimah
I think it’s just great

But others like to mock me
And give me some hate

They give me creepy looks,
And sometimes they swear,

Sometimes I think,
Why do they even care?

As I ignore them,
And cover my hair,

I walk with humility,
With the hijab that I wear.©

The Children Of Gaza

We don’t live near you
But you’re still close

We remember your innocence
Our gentle rose

You may feel lonely
As you shed a silent tear

The loud noises of guns
The bombs you hear

Wounds cut deep
Ever so sore

Guns still going off
Bombs outside your door

You’re just little
You barely understand

That they’re hurting you
Just for your land

We don’t know when it will end
We wish our prayers will help you mend

At times we’re happy
And at times we’re sad

Our life’s much easier than yours
We’re glad

God made you strong
We wouldn’t have coped

May God make you stronger
And give you some hope

One day you’ll win
And everyone will see

Palestine is yours
And Gaza is free©

Pray for Palestine

These girls…

These girls they always make me laugh
I’ve never met them face to face
They’re all uniquely different
In personality and race

I wish they lived next to me
We would have so much fun
We can ridicule each other
I’d poke then and run

They never seem to care
If you’re poorly and in a mood
When I’m sick and feeling glum
People usually say I’m rude

They always keep me happy
And pray for me always
These friends they are hard to find
I met these friends online.
