"I wear my hijab as an act of purity and modesty."
"The stares and glares I get from wearing my hijab I have never relished,
However this covering makes me feel honoured,safe and cherished.
For me the decrease in moral values make the hijab a must,
A source of liberation,dignity and protection from a lawless lust.
Many think that the hijab is a portable prison we have aquired,
Restricting our minds,lives and hearts never to be desired.
I wear my hijab to cover my neck ,throat and hair,
As a Muslim woman who believes her body is her own affair.
A dazzling display of immodest clothing sets off an alarm,
Wearing the hijab due to my faith ,protects me from harm,
Clothing choices are part of how I express myself and how I was brought up and bred,
Hopefully more and more people learn about the hijab and its acceptance continues to spread."
