Greys

I have a few greys.

And by ‘a few’ I mean enough greys for people to give their piece of mind

about what I should do,

to regain lost melanin.

I want to tell them,

that follicle will never sprout a black tress naturally now.

I simply sigh and let it be.

Apparently a woman attracts more unwarranted attention on her existence than a man.

Too young

too old

too upright

too loose

Whatnot.

Why don’t you,

heat up curry leaves in cotton oil

soak henna overnight in an iron cauldron

use hair colour?

Why don’t you,

just keep what you think to yourself

Unless I invite you to a round table conference discussing how I should look?

Can we really blame these impressionable minds?

When all beautiful women never age?
