I Am Not English - Poem by Soumita Sarkar Ray

I am not English
I am a learner
Yet I like to write
in this language
Only myself to please

To search for a slot
I dive in the realm of thought
To get my urge a voice
I don’t have any other choice
I wing my wish
I sing my dream
I invent myself
I write a verse
I strive to pen few lines with faults
The readers find them senseless
Those kind comment and rate
As if they can change my fate

Why will I beg
Why will I plead
So that they give a read
At all no crime hellish
If I want them to publish
They say I need a review
By the one who is born English

I shall still pen
I shall see my right
Tongue of dreams
Roads of feels
Words from layers
That slit human flesh
That which has no limit
A voice free from mortal spiirt
