I had a dream...

Ok, my poem for the day, in honor of Dr. King:

I, Too, Sing America, Langston Hughes
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.

I was surfing random journals and I came across this poem. Thanks for posting it.

I'm going to put it in my journal too.
