Our language

A straight saying, they have written their languages
English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, etc
Let me write South African Sign Language, in my own
Although, SASL is not officially written, oh, I guess

HOWZIT-YOU-WELL?
TODAY SUN BEAUTIFUL SHINE-OVER-THE-WORLD
YOU-WELL ME HOPE, HOPE, HOPE, WHY?
YOU NEED WELL BELIEVE HOLD-YES-YOU-CAN

The straight saying, they have written their languages
So, let me write SASL using English words
BUT NO ENGLISH SIGN PLEASE
SASL THIS (SASL) NO SPOKEN LANGUAGE

But I know that SASL has dialects, varies, variations
What can I do? It is not our fault that the apartheid
Made SASL be like, no choice but to bring oversea’s
Sign languages, yes, some like ASL, BSL, Irish SL

SASL NOT SIGN LIKE NO AUXILIARIES
WELL-HMM-HOWEVER ME KNOW NOT OTHER LANGUAGES
BUT ME KNOW ENGLISH ONLY SO ME SHOW ENGLISH WRITE
BUT NOT ENGLISH POWER, NOT ENGLISH STRUCTURE

Every language has its own rule to structure and grammar
Every language has its reasons why due to their dominations
WELL SEE SOUTH AFRICA ELEVEN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE HAVE
BUT WE DEAF WANT WHAT? SASL ADD, OFFICIAL TWELVES LANGUAGE

I am a Deaf male, and I write what comes my mind. I have been creatively writing since 2010, and from there has been growing my excitement and passionate for my poetry and writing.
