A Muslim Girl's Spoken Word

For the Beautiful Hijabis

What do you see?

When you look at me, what do you see?

You see me and right away you can tell I believe

in a God so merciful thats why I'm relieved

that no matter how much I screw up I will be forgiven

and yes I am proud of my religion

I wake up everyday as a Muslim girl, getting stared at by ignorant people

that think I'm oppressed, like I'm in some sort of bubble

but that isn't the case, I chose to do this for my own good

and if you don't believe me, maybe you should

open up your mind to the world of diversity

so you can't tell me who to be, because theres a million like me in this city

when you look at me, what do you see?

a Muslim girl, that is my identity
