Hearing Voices

I am an introvert in a world that pushes me to be an extrovert.  

I am an artist in a world that values me as a scientist.  

I am a healer in a world that reduces me to a set of letters: BA, MD, FRCPC. 


I am a woman in a world that wants me to be a man. 


I am religious in a world that tells me to be secular.

I am spiritual in a world that tells me to be religious.

I am religious in a world that tells me to be spiritual.


Religious, spiritual, religious. 


I am a human being in a world that desires me to be invisible.

I am wild in a world that coerces me to be civilized.

I am civilized in a world that calls me to be wild.


I am a speaker in a world that commands me to be silent.


And I am a Muslim in a world that tells me to be anything but. 


I am silent in a world that pressures me to speak.

I am patient in a world that tells me to rush.

I am free in a world that wants me to be in chains.


Introvert. Artist. Healer. Teacher.

Therapist.  Woman.  Religious. Spiritual. Religious. Human

Being. Wild. Civilized. Speaker. Muslim.    

Silent,

Patient

& Free.
