Why did you learn so many languages
You learnt so many languages
You had no time to speak
You only spoke in silence.
I spoke in a language
I had no time to learn
Because I had so much to speak
I was speaking all those things
That are silently simmering in you
I spoke so I didn’t listen
Did you listen so you didn’t have to speak
Did you listen too much and couldn’t speak ?
Will you speak for me and silence me with
your speech ?
Your own new language
A language that can heal the wounds inflicted
in all other languages….
