'And so I ask. . .?'

Do you even see me? Or not?
Am I something you acknowledge from within?

Have you ever asked me? Or not?
I've never once uttered that I was free of sin.

Do I look content to you? Or not?
Though you clearly recognise the twinkle in my eyes.

. . . Am I oppressed? Absolutely not!
For I live, to return beyond the skies.

Your poem depicts 'the art of questioning'for provoking conscience.

At the end, masha'Allah you seem to be bold enough
