This Has Got Me Feeling Sad ☹️

This has got me feeling sad

If only the world wasn’t so bad

But you must remember

You need to fight

You must not let the fright

Freeze you, consume you

You must move out from under him

You must push him out of the way

And cry out loud

Let’s not be proud

Let’s call these people out!!

A great reason to wear trainers

Get ready to run

Don’t let the struggle drain you

Get your keys in your knuckles

And jab

Make them scream and shout

And stab

Get out of danger

And when you’ve made it

Don’t forget to pass on the message

Our women need it

They have to heed it

You will fight back

You will not slack

In getting the message out there

No you don’t!

Don’t you dare!!!!

Women are powerful and for each other we care

We will change the world

We will shout and swirl

With a message new

We will help each other through

We will not stay quiet

We will show our might

We will help each other

We will get through our plight!

InshaAllah! 💕

Hi, I'm Sidra Ansari- author, freelance writer and teacher. I have recently written a book called Finding Peace Through Prayer and Love, published by Beacon Books. Check it out on Amazon! I began writing with the hope of representing people like me in the world of words. Whether it’s in articles, fictional pieces online or words in a physical book; representation matters! I love hearing from you so get in touch if my words resonate! It keeps me going 😃… Peace and love x
