Not My Mother Tongue

B is for Barbie cc licensed ( BY NC ND ) flickr photo by CherrySoda!:

This language is foreign to me.
It will not bend under my tongue.
It rebels against me.
I am under its spell.
A toddler with a Barbie doll,
I stretch its limbs too far
And it breaks.
I need to learn 
How to behave myself
Before I come to play again.

My NaPoWriMo Day 17 poem and I used the Day 17 PAD prompt (expression).
