Speak by Latifah Al Jasser

I’m a foreign language your tongue couldn’t speak,
I’m a foreign language where your accent can leak.

You’re a mother language I can not neglect,

You’re a mother language I want to forget.

I’m a land you are visiting,
You’re a visitor I’m planning on imprisoning.

You’re the home I seek refuge in,
You’re  under my skin,
You’ve found a place within.

I’m a foreign language you knew so well,
I’m a foreign language you ought to excel.

You’re a mother language I’ve failed to maintain,
You’re a mother language with 28 letters that create a chain,
You’re a mother language where every word comes with pain.

I’m a foreign language you beautified with your accent,
I’m a foreign language that taught you how to vent,
I’m a foreign language which your heart leant.
