Freedom
by Langston Hughes
Freedom will not come
Today, this year
Not ever
Through compromise and fear.
I have as much right
As the other fellow has
To stand
On my own 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 can not 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.
