Not a poem but a true story.
AUNTY(NOT A POEM)
Today i wrote a comment-not in here-
about how a poem can create new feelings to the reader and i have been given the answer "thanks aunty"!!!
I am only 46 years old and yes my hair turned gray,what does this mean?That i am not young anymore?Who has the right to age racism?To age insult?
When i responded "i am not that old to be called an aunty" he asked me my age and when i told him i expected a sorry but in return i had this answer:
"So,aren't you married?"No i am not and i am not going to be but this is not the issue here.He thinks a woman with gray hair is an aunty and ought to be married.
I am outraged with the stereotype first of gray hair than of married women and then of age discrimination. And i wanted your honest opinion.Do you think that i am an aunty?
