Pride of a Woman

I was walking 
absentmindedly on 
the street
When I saw a sight 
luvly to behold.
This sight fit to take 
a man off his seat
Cos it's one that is 
but for the bold!

I have been 
oblivious of its 
presence
Thinkin and gettin 
used to the anomalies
That assault many a 
sense
That to us,the sight 
is nothing but 
abnormalities!

What did you see
That makes you 
ramble and rumble
As a restless sea?
Shall you tell that 
which is making you 
tremble?

I shall tell and sell
Cos it's not meant
for me alone.
From afar, the sight 
greeting my eyes 
was a damsel
Covered gracefully 
in a hijab looking but 
not alone!

She was different 
from the crowd
As the sun from the 
cloudy cloud
She was hansomely 
beautiful
Cos covered all over 
was she to the full!

She is different from 
the naked
And clothless ones 
who assault our 
eyes naked.
They it is that are 
molested
By men who the sight 
of them had tempted!

But she is not,but 
she is respected,
And shouts of 
'Alhaja,Alhaja'
Makes me know she 
is not to be 
suspected
Of the evils 
committed near and 
far.

The reason for her 
reverence
By all and sundry I 
seek to know,
The Hijab she wears 
is the essence
That protects, guide 
and make evil men 
say No.

So, friends this is 
the sight
I think is nicely right
For the ladies both  
near and far from us
IF not like hers but 
something close thus!

At least,
They should 
upgrade their rags
To cover and 
protect themselves 
from the beast
That dwell in the 
soul of the man that 
sags!

?To my lady in the 
Hijab, I
Will say mighty and 
high 
Surely is thy beauty, 
worth and ways
That uncomparable 
is the sun and its 
rays!

To my lady in the 
Hijab, I
Will say mighty and 
high 
Surely is thy beauty, 
worth and ways
That uncomparable 
is the sun and its 
rays!

To you I pray
Never let anything 
make you
Drop your pridely 
covering and go gay
Like the ladies in this 
worldly place do!

You are pride and 
hope
To those that look 
up to you
Many a man will want 
you and is ready to 
cope
And meet your 
demands if you say 
'I do'!

Oh GOD, my Lord!
I Make a shout and 
plea to you
To bless and 
preserve these one 
who use
The Hijab and invite 
others to come 
onboard.
And those that to the 
Hijab's use, they say 
I do.
And not those who 
think it is but a ruse!
