How old are you? Shouldn’t you be married ?

Yes, I am
I shouldn’t be anything that
I don’t want to be.
I am complete by myself, don’t make me
Seem halved,
Because I don’t
Have a husband.

Do you want to disrespect your parents? Don’t you care about their wellbeing?

I’m not trying to
Be selfish.
I can’t marry
For the sake of social convention.
It’s not a problem. I don’t need to be fixed.
I’m not trying to hurt anyone
On purpose.

What use is your education? All that learning won’t find you a husband.

I’ll be single.
I won’t dumb down for a single
I’ll make my own money, so don’t
You worry.
I’ll take care of what
I need to.
There should be no reason to
For disobeying social ritual.
