And so I broke down today,
I don’t remember crying like this ever before!
It was an explosion of tears,
It was loud.
I was breaking as I walked home from town.
Too much pent up anger and rage.
I looked forward to coming home and complaining to my Lord,
Telling Him of the grief that I endured,
Whilst others walked away into the sunset,
Leaving me to suffer.
I’m not going to make excuses for them anymore,
I tried to be kind and compromising,
But I was lying to myself.
It’s time to discover self-respect,
And say that enough is enough.
We are a community and a body,
And you don’t drop other Muslims,
And just go back to a privileged life.
You could’ve shared that.
It was dishonourable and disrespectful.
And I hate you for making my life miserable.
