languages

There are some, for me at least

Easier to pickup than others.

I can grasp the complexities of a pictorial language like

Japanese

(Visually memorizing the meaning of the thousand-hair brush strokes)

Easier than say;

Czechoslovakian or Russian.

[ I got so lost at the beginning that I never really started ]

I need to both hear someone speak it, and to be able to read it

In order to understand.

Le sigh. My keyboard doesn’t translate the Eszett

Or I’m just a fool for trying

To speak beyond what is currently known.

There is something magical,

About the tonal languages

Tagalog comes to mind

Kamusta ka?
