Let me be

November 7, 2008
Just let me be
It is all I ask of you
This hijab
Was my choice
the path I chose to take
Don't judge me
Don't label me
I am not depressed
I am not opressed
Let me walk down the street
without stares
without questioning eyes
without mean glances
without glares
without snickering
that scars my soul
let me be
I am already free inside
I am like you
I strive you strive
I cry you cry
I bleed you bleed
I wanna achieve
I wanna succeed
If you let me be
If you give me that sacred chance
I will
I promise you
I will

This is a really good piece of work! I would love it if someone with your talent would look at my work (I have a lot so just some would be fine :)) And remeber, keep writing because you're really good at it! :)
