They told you to stay

Told you,

Inna ma’al usri yusra

With every hardship,

Comes ease

Black eyes,

Bruised skin,

Busted lips,

Broken teeth

They told you to stay

Told you,

Inna ma’al usri yusra

With every hardship,

Comes ease

At least you sleep

With a belly full,

Babies tucked in bed

a body to press into

They told you to stay

Told you,

Inna ma’al usri yusra

With every hardship,

Comes ease

So you agreed.

Shut your mouth,

Forgot yourself,

and stayed.
