beautiful dark-eyed arabian girl,
silence and loneliness is her world.

living in a land of strict ways,
she knows that she has to obey.

for if she doesn't she will be beaten,
and her emotions will feel eaten.

she wants to go out of this limited world,
and for her, loneliness and sadness is unfurled.

must not have her face show, listen to a man;
how much more of this must she stand?

can't go out in public, must be kept inside,
why must this beautiful woman hide?

in response to my arab friends, i know a lot of arabians aren't like this, but i was thinking of a book i had read where the husband mistreated his wife and little girl, and this poem came to my mind. i hope i didn't insult anyone with this. if i did, please accept my humble apologies.

I just finished reading "My Forbidden Face".
This anti-woman balderdash is no more a part of the Koran than homophobia is part of the New Testament.

Yes dear, for some the burden is light and for some the burden is ponderous. Masarat is lucky. Good write. Bill

Wonderful to read you again hun...I see you're still writing from others' perspective. This one's touching but all Arabs aren't like that. Some people got a bit ahead and suppress the women, let's leave them as the exception. Good write!
