Eyes that pierce and dance in a singular breath
Skin that shines the moonlight
Speech stronger than Malala
The Muslim warrior is born in North America
Not afraid to speak to power
Full of artistic splendor like the nightingale
The gesture to share on the shores
The willingness to breathe new life into Faith
This inner light
Coming from the mountains of Kush
More beautiful than Borealis
It's the pink a feminist is sometimes afraid to don
The coconut warrior!

Caribbean Muslim Convention 2016
People of Queens
Gathered under God
What a delight to eat cassava pone
And listen to Moulana Shafayat!
People of Princess town and Corentyne
Gathered under the American flag
What a delight to have dunkin’ donuts
And relish Melinda Katz and Dr Quick in one breath!
People of Roots and volunteerism
Gathered from masajids and cliques
What bliss to savor yummies and ice crush
And to eat and pray with Dr Shabbir and the beautiful hijabis of Ehsan Academy!
People of Allah
It was the best experience ever!
Your love is unconditional,
And I propose a cruise to the Islands for the next Caribbean Muslim Convention!

Longing for the aspirant childhood dream
That dances in my nocturnal journey
I prayed for the exotic union
Laid bare on the altar of Essequibian love
As ebony is enriched by the beauty of love
The waters so dark shed its inhibitors
Like the inhabitants of Paradise pure is the desire
One stroke in a thousand years
Love through faith
Love under the raining rooftops
In the waves that musically awaken buried passion
Like Damon and Cuffy
A revolution within is born and dreams lived again!
Passing each other
One from New York the other in Toronto
Although they knew each other
It took fifteen years and a cousin to line the stars
Now what was a call on CIOG dinner day
Turned out be a flirt with love and now down the aisle a few months after
How coild a girl with a mind of her own surrender?
A girl unconquerable by any other?
This is what love does
Breaks the bones of stubborn resistance
Softens the heart of bitter stoics
Makes a man leave the big apple for the apple of his eye
So fasting and prayers is the new Gucci
Smiling under those stern eyes she lives
Love that gives faith power
Is like pious Ali never deserting Fatima, not now nor ever!
