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.
My name is Ilma. I am thirteen years old. Writing poems or poetry is not my favourite thing but now that I have started writing although it is not a passion for me it is a fun thing. Hope you readers like the poem.
