That Piece of Cloth

Note: This was Originally written by a sister but I edited it with her permission and made it a bit longer and in a kind of conversation…

Why do you wear that piece of cloth? They ask;

To us it seems such a difficult task;

If we had to cover ourselves all day;

Hiding our beauty from the world, no way;

That piece of cloth has really no use;

Following religion is just an excuse;

That piece of cloth is so not the fashion;

That piece of cloth is just some oppression.



That piece of cloth, flying with wind;

That piece of cloth, throwing colors around;

That piece of cloth, gives me peace of mind;

That piece of cloth, keeps me safe and sound;

That piece of cloth is my own choice;

It is my identity; it gives me a voice;

That piece of cloth, truly hard to explain;

That piece of cloth is beyond beautiful;

It gives me no humiliation or shame;

That piece of cloth makes my life meaningful;

That piece of cloth, they say is oppression;

That piece of cloth is my satisfaction.
