why do you write in English?

if I write
in my mother tongue,
my mother will read it

if she reads my pain
you know how mother’s love is
her heart will ache
it’s simple, I love her dearly

why do you write in English?

if I write
in my native tongue,
my father will read it

if he reads my pain
you know how father’s love is
he might cry and cry
it’s simple, I can’t let him cry
