The scarf that rests upon my head
In Arabic, "Hijab"
May seem to some a fearful threat
Mysterious to some.
The names, the teasing. Whispering.
The silence of my tongue replies
Tis not of weakness or regret
But words alone cannot suffice
Motive behind my silky shield
If you had owned a diamond
Would you not always fear
That if you let it out and bout
You'd lose what was so dear
My beauty is mine
And for me only
I cover it from the eyes of the world
A gem covered by my jewelry box Hijab
Hijab to me
Presents to the world
Upon my head
Although the current pulls stronger and stronger
Out to sea
According to the shells of distinctive patterns
Erosion is a theory that never matters
