Modesty-

original

She walks down the street from
head to toe she is covered.
Lower your gaze sister
keep your body undiscovered.

They say ‘The Parda’ is a veil
to protect the beauty of the face
Don’t attract too much attention sister
don’t attract a moth to the flame.

But why is her modesty judged
by how much she veils herself.
Instead of focusing on her values,
her morals and the people that she helps.

Let’s redefine modesty to dress
in what we feel comfortable in.
As what may be modest to you and me
for someone else it may be a sin
