My Native Tongue This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My native tongue I try to hide.
Talking about secrets that I keep inside.
I clamp my teeth together.
Staying that way forever.
Not letting any words come out.
Even though my native tongue can scream and shout.
Hoping no one will know.
Hoping that my secrets don't show.
My native tongue I try to hide.
It talks about secrets I try to keep inside.
