Lift Your Veil

This poem hasn’t been written by me but I found it on www.poetry.com and thought it was beautiful. Kudos to Syeda Fatima for echoing some of my thoughts in such a simple manner! Read on…

You.
Lift your veil.
Your veil of arrogance.
Why do you think you are better than me?
Why do you assume I know nothing?
Lift your veil.
Your veil of ignorance.
Why are you so afraid of me?
Why are you so afraid of learning the Truth?
Lift your veil.
Your veil of hatred.
Why do you hate me?
Why do you assume you know me?
Lift your veil.
It is blinding your sight.
Accept me…Accept who I am.
My color, my dress, my culture, my religion.
Me.

Syeda Fatima
