When you first start to read "I Lost my Talk" you can already tell that it is going to be a sad kind of tone throughout the whole poem. She starts to describe what someone took from her at what age and where. In the second stanza she described on how you took it away and how she is just like you. Why do you want me to be just like you? In the third stanza I feel like she is talking about the way you always taught her to act like and then her way that she just realized when she grew up with out you around. But realized that your way is the right way to go about things. And finally, the last stanza. She wants to find herself by herself. She asks for the persons permission to please let her go and be and find out things for her own good. She needs to learn somehow.
