The English language is a confusing mess. It leaves my mind perturbed

When trying to spell I am distressed, its phonics are absurd

Of the 26 letters in its alphabet 19 can be silent

When trying to pronounce or spell you can bet, I get very violent

The same letters can make different sounds, different letters can make the same

In the same word different meaning abounds, it's enough to drive me insane

Multiple ways to spell the same word, two acceptable conjugations of the past tense

Singular but no plural who ever heard? Plural but no singular makes no sense

      And to top it off, the more you interact in English, with English, the more it becomes a part of you! Thank you for sharing.

          Thank you Teddy for your review. I speak Portuguese and it is mostly phonetic but still has its problems.
