I am a Muslim woman
by Jenn Zaghloul

    I am a Muslim woman
    Feel free to ask me why
    When I walk,
    I walk with dignity
    When I speak
    I do not lie

    I am a Muslim woman
    Not all of me you'll see
    But what you should appreciate
    Is that the choice I make is free

    I'm not plagued with depression
    I'm neither cheated nor abused
    I don't envy other women
    And I'm certainly not confused

    Note, I speak perfect English
    Et un petit peu de Francais aussi
    I'm majoring in Linguistics
    So you need not speak slowly

    I run my own small business
    Every cent I earn is mine
    I drive my Chevy to school & work
    And no, that's not a crime!

    You often stare as I walk by
    You don't understand my veil
    But peace and power I have found
    As I am equal to any male!

    I am a Muslim woman
    So please don't pity me
    For God has guided me to truth
    And now I'm finally free!
