Culture, Religion & Hair

by Ilma


Different places!
Of course,
different thoughts.

My classmates, mostly girls
ask what my hair is like.
That’s it! Why can’t girls keep quiet?

Sometimes I feel annoyed and I really try to ignore them.

I am really strong in my religion,
I use lots of fabric to cover all parts of my body
that I shouldn’t show.

25% of most countries,
have people like me,
I wonder if they are bothered
by the same questions.
