live in the along

Democracy

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.

 

      Freedom

      Is a strong seed

      Planted

      In a great need.

      I live here, too.

      I want freedom

      Just as you.

 

            Langston Hughes 1902-1967
