This is a poem from the great Langston Huges, You can feel the struggle & desire for freedom and equality in the tone of his writing, it’s a beautiful thing to peer into time through the eyes of some of history’s greatest writers. I hope you enjoy it…

Democracy by Langston Hughes
Democracy will not come
Today, this year
Nor ever
Through compromise and fear.

I have as much right
As the other fellow has
To stand
On my two feet
And own the land.

I tire so of hearing people say,
Let things take their course.
Tomorrow is another day.
I do not need my freedom when I’m dead.
I cannot live on tomorrow’s bread.

Is a strong seed
In a great need.

I live here, too.
I want freedom
Just as you.
