    This is a Letter to Your Beautiful Mind

    This is a Letter to Your Beautiful Mind

    By: from Rahat Kurd

    from the scarfhead you glanced at
    uneasily as you went past in the street today
    the one you judged and dismissed
    in the fraction of a second it took for your eyes
    to transmit the image to your brain.
    it is being written out of a weary kind of anger
    because really i mean
    it's only a scarf. Relax
    the first response: go with your gut
    i wear it
    because i want to. deal with it.

    the second response: politics and the fine art of the reactionary
    no i'm not oppressed
    no i don't come from iran
    no i'm not a fundamentali-
    hey. Hey! I'm TALKING to you--

    third response: the appeal to intellect by reason
    my scarf, my resolve, my love achieved
    after seventeen years of edging apologetically toward this
    far out
    way of life

    will command your respect: assert my right to dignity
    over the insolent stare of disbelief, contempt, or pity
    will declare with pride our name, out faith, our identity
    ...will keep my ears quite warm in winter, actually...

    The Muslim Woman "Unveiled"
    By: Izdehar Albowyha

    You look at me and call me oppressed,
    Simply because of the way I'm dressed,
    You know me not for what's inside,
    You judge the clothing I wear with pride
    My body's not for your eyes to hold,
    You must speak to my mind, not my feminine mold,
    I'm an individual, I'm no mans slave,
    It's Allahs pleasure that I only crave

    I have a voice so I will be heard,
    For in my heart I carry His word,
    "O ye women, wrap close your cloak,
    So you won't be bothered by ignorant folk

    Man doesn't tell me to dress this way,
    It's a Law from God that I obey,
    Oppressed is something I'm truly NOT,
    For liberation is what I've got

    It was given to me many years ago,
    With the right to prosper, the right to grow,
    I can climb moutains or cross the seas,
    Expand my mind in all degrees
    or God Himself gave us LIB-ER-TY,
    When He sent Islam,
    To You and Me!
