You are soft and covering,
As I move, you provide,
Yes! Some have been infamous
That is true,
not the majority I say,
No! Not the majority at all.
One way direction,
Forward, I press,
Sometimes simply breezing by the things I pass,
Destination without procrastination,
Snuggled under so tightly as I walk,
To cold to do without you,
Bold enough to speak about you,
You are worn in different styles from
culture to culture by any human,
Youngins, woman, men,
How is it that for only one culture you
represent only danger, only sin?
Couldn’t that sin apply to most anyone?
It is the behavior associated with it when done
that fuels the fear,
Know that it is true for any culture, any time,
Understand that this is
not the only selected choice and gear,
Folks do what they plan in the face that smiles ,
With no covering at all,
Without any regard, respect, repentance or fear.
