POEM OF THE MONTH

image

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

By ,The late Langston Hughes (Poet Laureate)
