Iam a Renaissance woman I want a black dress I want it flimsy and cheap I want it too loose,I want to wear it until someone does not have a negative compliment about it I want a black dress coz am not too much into colors I want it to cover all parts of my body I want to walk down the street past Ahmed in the masajid Past James in the hardware store Past Abdi in an iPhone store Past mama halimo selling ornaments on the street I want to walk like I’m the only muslimah on the planet and I can have my pick I want that black dress bad I want it to confirm your worst fears about the way I dress Or do you have a problem with me? To show how I literally care about you Eventhough Peter talks ill about you When I find it,I’ll pull that garment from its hanger like I’m choosing a body to carry me into this world through the birth-cries and the love-cries too And I’ll wear it like bones,like skin It will be goddamned dress they bury me in Pretty women wonder where my secret lies I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion models size But when I start to tell them They think am telling lies I say It’s words that comes from my mouth that are like thunder storm that strike your heart down I say it’s the five daily prayers I pray on time Iam a Renaissance woman And I wish I could say this doesn’t cause me fear Iam a Renaissance woman And I love being one But why does it mean I have to receive less? Why can you freely voice your school of thoughts while mine I always have suppress? Iam a Renaissance woman I want to be able to go out wearing what I love,without fearing the “consequences “ To have my unique styles and preferences Iam a Renaissance woman Yes iam But before that I’m also HUMAN Just like you And all women deserve to be treated with the same respect men do too Because,regardless of gender or race Each and everyone of us Has the right….to feel safe
