Language Barrier

I’m screaming at the top of my lungs

But she can’t hear me.

I might as well be yelling in French or Spanish because

She just doesn’t understand me

When I tell her I can’t do this.


She doesn’t get it when I tell her

I don’t know

Je ne sais pas,

Yo no sé

—how I’m going to see this through.


It’s like my brain es en fuego from all

Of the información being crammed into it and

When I tell her, the only thing she can say is

¿Dondé esta la biblioteca?


But despite our language barrier, we both

Understand that je suis une étudiante

Before I am une fille,

Une sœur, et

Une personne.
