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! 💕
