GRIPE

When lost between the devil and the deep blue sea
There aren’t many options available for the safest flee
Being held back, not a few but all the time
Caught in a mob of stifling apron strings, I am not FINE! !
All these Dos and Don’ts are pecking me… in the eye
This hideous phase of society is so beautifully dyed

Around me, everything that light touches
Every shoulder I could have possibly laid on, is damp and frigid
Everything, so fake… everyone, so made up
For god’s sake, put an end to this stealth make up!
No birds but today sparks all over the blue sky
For the tiniest issue would rise to a wide spread cry

All over the world, it’s only Blood and terror
Being a Muslim, a tremendous error
I am a Muslim, not a serial killer
As far as I know, my faith is my personal filler

I am proud to be a Muslim

What’s there to be ashamed anyhow?
I love peace and Allah, and only to Thee I bow…
