Faith

A Muslim Woman

She conceals her beauty
Obstructs the radiance from seeping through
Cloaks her seductively
Refuses to submit to the worldly desires
Preserves her attractiveness and charm
Protects the diamond within
She is left savorless
                  Banal
                  Insipid
                  Vapid
Yet she remains veiled.

She is ridiculed by prejudice
Mocked by displayed beauty
Taunted by the devil.
It shatters her patience
Lowers her self esteem
But only for a split of a second.
She remains veiled.

It’s strange
Incomprehensible
Yet marvelous
It’s faith.
