Who I Am !


What do you see

when you look at me

Do you see someone limited,

or someone free




All some people can do is just look and stare

Simply because they can't see my hair




Others think I am controlled and uneducated

They think that I am limited and un-liberated




They are so thankful that they are not me

Because they would like to remain 'free'




Well free isn't exactly the word I would've used

Describing women who are cheated on and abused




They think that I do not have opinions or voice

They think that being hooded isn't my choice




They think that the hood makes me look caged

That my husband or dad are totally outraged




All they can do is look at me in fear

And in my eye there is a tear




Not because I have been stared at or made fun of

But because people are ignoring the one up above




On the day of judgment they will be the fools

Because they were too ashamed to play by their own rules




Maybe the guys won't think I am a cutie

But at least I am filled with more inner beauty




See I have declined from being a guy's toy

Because I won't let myself be controlled by a boy




Real men are able to appreciate my mind

And aren't busy looking at my behind




Hooded girls are the ones really helping the muslim cause

The role that we play definitely deserves applause




I will be recognized because I am smart and bright

And because some people are inspired by my sight




The smart ones are attracted by my tranquility

In the back of their mind they wish they were me




We have the strength to do what we think is right

Even if it means putting up a life long fight




You see we are not controlled by a mini skirt and tight shirt

We are given only respect, and never treated like dirt




So you see, we are the ones that are free and liberated

We are not the ones that are sexually terrorized and violated




We are the ones that are free and pure

We're free of STD's that have no cure




So when people ask you how you feel about the hood

Just sum it up by saying 'baby its all good' ;)
