I am a Prisoner of Language

I am a prisoner of language
I cannot convey ideas, needs, meanings
Without the use of language
Well, almost always
Sometimes I do use mimicry
Sometimes I do draw pictures
But these have big limitations

I have to use words and sentences
To make myself understood
And to understand others
I am a prisoner of language
And I need to know more than one
If I need to understand and
to be understood by people
who do not know my language

Am I free, am I liberated, as
I am a prisoner of language?
But were we free before we became
Prisoners of language?
No, of course not; ask any caveman
When we became prisoners of language
We also became liberated and free
Free to communicate
Free to understand
Free to learn
