With spring just around the corner, guest writer shares with us her poem on being "Like a Flower".
Like a Flower
I’d like to be an orchid…
mysterious and beautiful, like a Muslim woman.
I’d like to be a lavender…
standing tall and beautiful, like a Muslim woman
proud to cover up yet popping with color.
I’d like to be a flower
delicate yet radiant.
