Name A Language
Parmis Amiri, Grade 8
English - international tongue
French - a romantic song
Spanish - a fiery burn
German - a throaty churn
Japanese - a structured breath
Persian - a poet’s death
The list goes on.
And I promise, promise, you won’t name the silent one.
When breath fails to become articulated air
Or ears don’t notice
The dissolved notes that tear through silence,
Humanity signs to speak
Yes, the language is rare, Yet it exists
And the eyes learn to hear while hands learn to speak
And it’s truly, truly beautiful,
How the loudest words aren't the ones we hear
But the ones we live.
