Just over a year ago, I wrote and posted this poem for the first time. I think it’s time to share it again..


walk this way

in this best case scenario

i’m watching the watchers

that are watching me

undecided about the level of hostility

that they should give me

i can hear their thoughts

broadcasting loud and clear

is this a sneak attack?

should we protect the rear?

when i’m just a lone woman


towards the destiny

that Allah the Most High

has set in front of me

i’m a teacher i’m a mother

i’m daughter i’m a lover

my existence in this life

is as it should be, see?

if you view me as a threat

your mind is small and closed

my only weapons are intelligence

knowledge and experience

wrapped up in the faith

that’s gonna set me free

i can only testify

that the path i walk

with measured steps

is paved with uneven stones

and in places

it has crumbled

leaving gaps

that make me stumble

and throw my rhythm off

leave me wandering

and discombobulated

i knew

that it was not meant to be easy

but harsh reality

sometimes appears to tease me

dangling the shiny things

money cars and diamond rings

status wealth and power

with minions to control

trying to

exploit my weakness

trying to tempt my soul

but i face the east and pray

with my head bowed low
