I LOST MY TALK

Devastating: both the text and the music. The National Youth Choir of Canada has this in their repertoire. First Nations woman, Rita Joe, attended a residential school as a youth. Looking back, she reveals her pain in a subtle and beautiful way.

I lost my talk –
the talk you took away.
When I was a little girl
at Shubenacadie School
you snatched it away

I speak like you
I think like you
I create like you

The scrambled ballad about my world

Two ways, I talk
Both ways I say
Your way in more powerful

So, gently I offer my hand and ask
Let me find my talk
So I can teach you about me.

poem: Rita Joe
