help needed with translation please

15 Oct

Can anyone identify this language and if so, what it says? i want to use it in some possible work but would like to know if it’s appropriate. Found this morning on a walk along the river, it was the only piece, torn and as if some had been burnt.

    I think it’s english but the handwriting is just confusing, like mine! it was probably meant to be private tho, not used in an artwork of someone else’s – ok, ducking now!!

      it has a number of different languages,maybe 5(! in it after googling separate words so it could be that, or it could be Esperanto–whatever it is, i am going to use it hoping there is nothing embarrassing in it–i think it was someone’s home work and that’s why the “i can’t do this” part

    I think most of it is not English, but there is a definite English phrase near the end: “I can’t do thi[s]”…could mean more than just homework…

      i have this romantic but sad story in my head that someone was trying to explain something to another person who didn’t want to hear it……total fiction no doubt, but good for my purposes 🙂

    I think it’s intriguing and makes for great fodder for romantic sad stories … and a great impetus for interesting work for sure!!!

    I stumbled across a blog awhile ago that was actually nothing but found bits of paper (mostly lists as I remember it). Made for some pretty intriguing reading, but I’ve since lost the addy. Seeing this reminded me of it and now (like those pesky songs that stick in your head) I know I’m going to have to google it & see if I can locate it again.

    This is my own mother language and I am from the Czech Republic. I agree with as Dana writes.
    4… something is wrong, I am much more…
