Democracy

Written by: Langston Hughes | Biography
 | Quotes (10) |
 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.
