Reflections of Youth

Myself
by Malack G Abdelsalam

As I walk down the halls
people turn to gawk and stare
at my hijab and myself
let them laugh
I don’t care
cause I’m proud to be a Muslim

Being a Muslim
following Islam
isn’t always easy
but that’s the way I am

And they can laugh
and they can gawk
but for me
at least I can see
that I’m being true
following my religion
is the best thing I can do
