Some lunatic decided to kill 22 people
And it breaks my heart hearing those stories all over the news
it breaks to know the trauma all of those are going through
a mother lost her child
a child lost her mother
friends lost each other
But I won’t say sorry
I won’t condemn his actions
because it’s not my job
not after condemning them for so long
I am tired of the articles that pour in right after
talking about Islam being misogynistic and extreme
And then the worry about all of the mosques that get burnt
all of the hijabis that get attacked
the kids that get bullied
the Muslim men harassed.
One attack and a whole group get double the harm.
Have you thought of the countless Muslims helping?
The doctors, cab drivers, the ones who donate blood
not to mention the ones who were probably in the attacks
going through the same trauma as you
So no more worries, no more explaining
I don’t have ISIS as a contact on my phone
neither do any of the other billions of Muslims worldwide
it’s time you take off those ignorant glasses you’re looking through.
