Languages Of The World - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

Melvin Banggollay

The world we live today speak various languages
For every nation has their own distinct tongue;
But no matter how they may be variedly package
They can unveil the same meaning for all tongue.

Though we may speak in various languages
We can still understand each other’s tongue
As long as we try to share our heart as bridges
To understand and respect each other’s tongue.

God gave us languages as our sacred token
For us to clearly understand all his plan
But on bubble’s tower he made many tongue
That confused the folks and fight for their clan.

But today with the advent of science and religion
With technology and the power of education
We can now understand each other’s tongue
In the spirit of brotherhood among all humans.
