Favorite Quote:
Believe in the good of people (that all people are inherently good) but trust no one.

Every action made is a reflection:
A reflection of who I am.

Being a Pakistani Muslim in America,
Eyes stare as I walk past;
People judging the way I look:
The scarf I wear so proudly.

No one really knows about me,
Yet their judgment comes so readily.

The author's comments:
My poem was inspired by the Six-Word Memoir project so each line has exactly six words. My woodblock print was feature in the recent six-words memoir book, Things Don’t Have to be Complicated: Illustrated Six-Word Memoirs by Students Making Sense of the World, along with the poem.
