As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.
But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?"
A woman is alive, a woman is alive.
You do not take her for a siren
An anchor on a stone, alone, unfaceted and fine.
And never will I wed.
I’ll hunt the pearl of death to the bottom of my life,
and ever hold my breath ‘til I may be the diver’s wife.
See how the infinite divides,
and the divers are not to blame
for the rift spanning distant shores.
You don’t know my name,
but I know yours.
