Ode to My Hijab

This soft cloth
Flowing in my hand
Feels so smooth
Feels so delicate

This quiet cloth
So beautiful
So shy
With its design
Of precious threads
Moving together
To create
This masterpiece

This simple cloth
May not be so
For if you look closely
You would uncover
The reality behind
This cloth

This shield
Has a job to do
Not only to protect
But to expose

To be
My cloth
Would I still
Be me?

I owe
So much to
This soft cloth
This quiet cloth
This simple cloth

This shield.
