    My friend though she'd write a poem in regards to the Orlando shooting. Please comment your opinion and what your general opinion of it is and if it has affected the way you look at Muslims worldwide.

    NOT MY NAME

    Alqaeda, Boko haram, Isis.
    No, that's not my name.
    A world wide crisis
    Where all Muslims are labelled the same.
    Terrorists.

    What is a terrorist? What makes a terrorist?
    I'm in need of a therapist,
    A therapist I can ask my questions,
    A therapist that will know all the answers to my questions,
    What exactly makes a terrorist?
    Is it the religion they are a part of?
    Is is the country they are from?
    Is it the race they are a part of?
    Or is the culture they are from?
    Is it the the way they are dressed?

    All these questions are leaving me distressed.
    Yet, the main question that we all ask ourselves,
    Are all Muslims terrorists?
    Muslims are starting to question themselves,
    Does Islam promote terrorism?

    NO,this is not my Islam,
    These so called muslims teach how to hate and divide,
    Islam, real Muslims teach how to love and unite
    Not spread a message written in blood
    Blood of their own people
    Blood of their wives
    Blood of their children
    Blood of their families
    Blood of their sisters
    Blood of their brothers
    Blood of their mothers
    Blood of their fathers
    The blood is starting to overflow
    Starting to flood
    Starting to flow through our once peaceful lands
    Like a deadly snake, slithering swiftly through the land of dread and misery.

    A sin is committed by those trying to spread Islam,
    Yet they do nothing but repel people from Islam.
    No, this is not my Islam.
    No, this is not how to spread Islam.
    Your Islam is Not My Islam.
    My Islam is peace and unity...

    Your poem's alright OP, bar the fact that anyone with half a brain cell doesn't think all or most Muslims are terrorists.
