Democracy (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.
