once upon a time
PAINT ME A DREAM
What right has man to judge, and stone
A woman to death. Such bad behaviour
And with, horror of horrors, talking
With a man not related. The Mullahs
Don’t want women to be angels, just good slaves.
Wear your niqaab, stay at home, and don’t answer back.
You are inferior;
The fundamentalists paint a picture,
Of nightmares against women who live in a dream.
Thinking they are equal.
Should be treated with respect.
Then time after time shown
they are lesser than a man.
Cannot make a decision,
not allowed to participate in social or
Stay at home remember your gender.
Paint me a dream of respect;
answer me- why can we not make
Have custody of our children.
Work where we decide,who are you:_Male
Its time we arose,
and demanded our equality.
Take hold of our humanity.
Lets find a way to be part of you.
Weave a weft of (a people]dressed
and living as we desire.
Paint me a dream.
One where the stoning of
Cannot, and will not happen.
