WelcomeTo My World

I am breaking the Silence

I am breaking the Silence because under this compulsory Burqa, I do have a voice
I want the world to know that I do not wear this garment by choice.
This sack on my head is a mocking cloak
An invented custom designed, to see me choke.
I am 'breaking my Silence'
To assist you to abandon your extremist ways
Withdraw from these archaic practices and revoke!
