Sister let me tell you about life
I am woman we are free and strong
I walk freely down the street until those men stop me
Mama says they are Ignorant
I think they are Ignorant and Scary
Scary, Ignorant with the musky reminiscent smell of their beer chugging Sunday afternoon
They tugged at my Veil, you see
I ran and it came off
I was ashamed and I cried so hard it felt as if the world shook.
I felt it building up in my body
The rage towards those stupid drunkards
I turned around and ran at them
It didn't take much to knock one down
They were stumbling over their shoelaces as it was
I prayed Allah would forgive me for my violence
I felt empowered
They didn't even try to chase me, Lana
I got my veil from one of their drink pink hands
"Don't mess with us you hear?" I said
You see sister we can do anything
Don't let anyone walk over you
Go to sleep now Lana.
I can't tell my sister the truth.
I just have to continue scrubbing my violated skin.
Death is Easy. Life is Hard
