Don’t date an Arab girl
She is harder to convince and more complex to understand
than the ones on the big screen that have convinced you of her delicate and timid nature
She is not oppressed, like those caricatures on the news
Her long, flowing hair has not grown dark and strong to guide your eyes to
Her curved figure, which exists not to twirl into shapes
so that she many enchant you to the beat of the Debke. The Arab girl is born
with a fire in her belly and has inherited the strength of her foremothers.
Don’t date an Arab girl for she carries the Middle East on her shoulders
Every war and every invasion pushes her to tears she fights back to replace
with a brave face for her brothers and sisters; starving, homeless and grieving.
Don’t date an Arab girl, she inspires revolutions with her passion…
