the language of innocene

if you are from a nation where

there are thousands of languages

and like the taste of water

change every twelve kilometres

where you fail to predict what language

the other person speaks or understands

and when they meet each other

like strangers from other planet

they always wish if there was

some way to translate their words

the life would have been easier

and the atmosphere bit breezier

it is the evolution of human species

that has created this linguistic divide

else it is the language of innocence

that is well heard and understood

and we all interact in that language

with our kids and the newborns

till they grow up and get immersed

into this ocean full of languages

  1. This is so true. And you rightly pointed out how there is no language divide among kids. We’ve complicated things for ourselves.
    Om another note,your poem posted on my blog is generating a lot of praise. Please check it out 😀

  2. Honestly, when I saw the title I didn’t know what to expect, but I must say that when I press the back button, I’m returning as a satisfied reader. It’s so true, language is just a barrier sometimes, of a person wants to express, no language and no barrier in this world is strong enough to contain him/her.
    Great writing!
