I want to learn a new language,

which I can use everyday,

I don’t care if other people don’t understand the words I say.

I know at times I struggle with speaking my native tongue English,

but even this new language to me sounds like gibberish.

So I listen very carefully to every word for some kind of significance,

but I feel like I’m missing out on conversations of imperative importance.

I laugh at myself trying to communicate on his level,

taking in his voice whether it’s with tears or laughing hysterical.

I guess I just want to chit chat with my son even if it means I have to squeak and squawk,

man, I really need lessons to become fluent in baby talk.
