I am a Muslim Woman

I am a Muslim woman
Feel free to ask me why
When I walk
I walk with dignity
When I speak
I do not lie
 
I am a Muslim woman
Not all of me you’ll see
But what you should appreciate
Is that the choice I make is free
 
I’m not plagued with depression
I’m neither cheated nor abused
I don’t envy other women
And I’m certainly not confused
 
Note, I speak perfect English
Et un petit peu de Francais aussie
I’m majoring in Linguistics
So you need not speak slowly
 
I run my own small business
Every cent I earn is mine
I drive my Chevy to school & work
And no, that’s not a crime!
 
You often stare as I walk by
You don’t understand my veil
But peace and power I have found
As I am equal to any male!
 
I am a Muslim woman
So please don’t pity me
For God has guided me to truth
And now I’m finally free!
