Food And Stuff

Poem By mariam khan Farah Abdulahi

Have you heard?
It’s hallal to use!
Haram to buy!
As you buy fruit and veg. today.
Oh that looks good all covered in pesticide.
It’s nice and cheep.
Do you know who picked it?
Yes it was your brother or sister.
The one with no wage.
Can’t send there children to school.
Can’t even afford to see a doctor.
So you might say it’s hallal to eat.
But do you really want to eat that pesticide and
With every bight know that others are suffering.
What about that cereal!
The one that tastes oh so nice.
Yes the one that’s tested on animals.
Do you really want to eat it?
Knowing with every bight an animal is suffering.
What about those eggs the ones at half the price?
Hens stuffed in cages being mistreated all the time.
There not allowed to run free.
The way it’s meant to be.
What about those trainers you like made from the baby kangaroo?
Do you know who made them for you?
Children on low wage.
Working day and night.
Trying to survive.
Maybe loosing a finger or two.
Just to make you a shoe.
As you spend a fortune for a label named after that dead kangaroo.
Why don’t you stop and think what’s best to do.
In a way so that Allah will reward you.

Oh Can You Feel Me, Hear Me See Me.

OH Can you feel the pain in my heart as I see the pain in your eyes
Can you hear me cry at night as I hear you cry?
I give you my all even though you see me crumble
You are my sister

The Home I'Ve Not Yet Seen.

I dream of going home one day
To a place I’ve never seen
A place with bombs
Fighting all the time

Allah

As you see the pain in my eyes.
You feel the joy in my heart.
As the tears flow from inside.
You see me smile.

In This Land Of The Free.

Slavery has stoped
You say there is no isms
The black man is now free
Are you sure you did not just replace me!

Show Me The Way.

Take me along this path.
Do I go strait? Do I go back?
With every step I take.
I see the moon, the stars, and the sun.
