Forgotten Language - Native Tongues

I tried to speak it
To form those words
That everyone else spoke
Like a foreigner
Learning a new language
A foreigner
In my own world
And as I tried to copy them
To converse and belong
I found that they didn’t understand me
Or my words at all
So I crawled back in
Folded deeply inside myself
And searched
And wandered
For those words that would make them understand
But through those travels
Through those tribes and those trails
I learned I didn’t want to be them
I didn’t want to misunderstand
And as I found myself
I found my own language
My own letters and words
So I don’t need the other ones
This ancient tongue

Is enough for me
