thought explosion..freewrite

identity..crisis..
if ur intent shows, wear it.
look into the mirror and take a good look...
ask yourself who you really are...
ask yourself who you imitate..
who's had an influence on you?
you could talk the talk, but do you walk the walk?
we, created as unique individuals each...
no two being the same,
why have you conformed and began to imitate others,
playin some copy-cat game?
At one time, our dynasty was imitated by others...
now we have imitated them...
my heart shatters everytime i see a sister
wearing the identity of a muslimah but breaking rules to just seem ''normal''...
seeing brothers wearing the label but showing the world they can ''get down''....
where have we come to and where are we going?
if all the contents of our hearts were to be exposed, how many of us would be ashamed?
don't judge a book by its cover? absolutely...but at the same time,
remember that your actions and character shows who you are...
talk is cheap..actions speak louder than words, after all...right?
so if you're gonna talk the talk..then learn how to walk too...
take a good look in that mirror and pull back the layers and layers of
your identity
ask you who you really are and if you show it...
word...(c)
