Hello July! & Inspiration from Langston Hughes
“I have discovered in life that there are ways of getting almost anywhere you want to go, if you really want to go.”
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?”
“I am so tired of waiting, aren’t you, for the world to become good and beautiful and kind? Let us take a knife and cut the world in two – And see what worms are eating At the rind.”
“I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen When company comes, But I laugh, And eat well, And grow strong.
Tomorrow, I’ll be at the table When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare Say to me, ‘Eat in the kitchen,’ Then. Besides, They’ll see how beautiful I am And be ashamed— I, too, am America.”
