30-Day Writing Challenge, Day Nine: Your Feelings On Ageism

Ah, age.  The most hated of constructs (in my personal opinion).

As a child, I was told I couldn’t think for myself, due to my age.

As I grew, I was told I could only do things as my age dictated.

As I continue to age, the same will apply.

Who decides what ages can do what?  Who decides that that person has the authority to do so?

Age is just a number.  Personally, I feel that’s all it should reflect.
