‘I’sick not Isis

BsXvXXTCQAA4qgz

I do know something
Am sure I know something
No extensive reading done
On a certain people called ISIL
But am sure I know something

I know poisonous people
They come together
Different Shades of black and white
Sadistic in nature
Beautiful caftans
Nice smiles on the outside
Condemning one of their sect
Tagging them “un-islamic”
That I find ludicrous

I do know something
Am sure I know something
Whatever our hands touch
We leave fingerprints
On walls on furniture
On doorknobs,dishes,books
As we touch
We leave our identity
That true identity

I know something
Am sure I know something
The rape,abduction,killing
Killing of women
Killing of unborn children
Merely an extension
Of ‘one moderate’ Islamic doctrine
Marginalisation and oppression
Of women
They teach

I know something
Oh please
Am sure I know something
That wherever I go today
I want to leave heartprints
Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and life
Heartprints of kindness
And genuine concern

I know something
Am sure I know something
Should I tell you what you know
You know medieval barbarism
Which must be put in the past
Cleared off the footprints
Of the present

I try to expose
They still won’t feel heaviness
Then I figured
‘people hate those that make them
Feel their own complexities
