Modesty is a taboo in modern society.
So why are you covering yourself up like an attacker?
Are you hiding bones and blood unearthing that cloak?
You should flaunt yourself so much there is nothing left to imagine
You do this because your a muslim woman?

Red eyes barring on the backs of the you
Others want you to be as decorative as christmas trees
To be as sweet as the nectar from the rose of sharon
All because you are a muslim woman

To speak what you believe is like asking for death
An angel sent down from heaven to guide us
But because you're different
they walk in circles around you
And treat you like a dumb bird and lock you up with their expectations
All because you are a muslim woman

I'm not some floating piece of dust
but human just like the rest of you
So why don't you accept me
Stop giving those looks of distrust
Because I am a muslim woman

But because I am that angle, with wings of the bird that they locked up
I will use my beak to unlock the cage
I will fly up and come down like a fireball
The spotlight shining on me as if I am onstage
I am a muslim woman

I am so unique
I see the angle in me all the time
Not looking for judging my physique
But looking at who I am
I am a muslim woman
