Under The Sun

Under the sun
Under the heat
Under this scorching summer breeze
I’m enveloped around an inferno
A raging blaze
Encircling my head
My neck
Is a piece of cloth
My hijab
My protector
My shield
My identity
Even though this fire wants to take me in
Wants me to become engulfed in my sweat
I shall be strong
I shall be true to myself
I shall not give in
As I know this flame is only a piece of the real thing
