"You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
One day you will be sick."
Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
So, after having done some research on cats, I finally decided to adopt one, but I went today to the kennel and ended up with a nasty rush in my face. I’m probably allergic and now I’m sad because I won’t be able to have a cat after all. :(
