Who Are You To Say

Who are you to say

I can't wear my hijab or my jilbab

I will not let you lead me atray and make my skies gray

These are my clothes and this is my life

Naked you want me to be


Not my body will you see

Not me nor hers will it be

She is my sister

My sister in Islam

So listen man it's not in your hands to dictate to me what I can or can not wear

How do you dare

Author's Notes/Comments: 

this is for my sisters over seas who are having to fight to keep their cover on to stay in school
