what is being muslim like?
it's fine, besides the occasional calls
for our genocide.

it's fine, besides the people
who say we are all terrorists.

it's fine, besides the people 
who cross sidewalks so they
don't have to be on the same side of 
the street as us.

it's fine, besides the people
saying my religion isn't a religion
and just an ideology. 

it's fine besides the extremists
that gave us a bad name 
and dragged our pride for our culture 
through the mud. 

it's fine, besides the fact 
that my nightmares consisit of me 
running through the woods,
hunted and persecuted.

it's fine, besides the fact 
that i have to be worried about my sister
and will she be bullied?

it's fine besides
the fact
that it's really not
