Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


It was a long time ago.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


I have almost forgotten my dream.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


But it was there then,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


In front of me,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Bright like a sun—
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


My dream.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


And then the wall rose,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Rose slowly,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Slowly,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Between me and my dream.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Rose slowly, slowly
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Dimming,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Hiding,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


The light of my dream.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Rose until it touched the sky—
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


The wall.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Shadow.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


I am black.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


I lie down in the shadow.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


No longer the light of my dream before me,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Above me.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Only the thick wall.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Only the shadow.
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


My hands!
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


My dark hands!
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Break through the wall!
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Find my dream!
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Help me to shatter this darkness,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


To smash this night,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


To break this shadow
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Into a thousand lights of sun,
Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes


Into a thousand whirling dreams of sun!

As I Grew Older

It was a long time ago.

I have almost forgotten my dream.

But it was there then,

In front of me,

Bright like a sun—

My dream.

And then the wall rose,

Rose slowly,

Slowly,

Between me and my dream.

Rose slowly, slowly

Dimming,

Hiding,

The light of my dream.

Rose until it touched the sky—

The wall.

Shadow.

I am black.

I lie down in the shadow.

No longer the light of my dream before me,

Above me.

Only the thick wall.

Only the shadow.

My hands!

My dark hands!

Break through the wall!

Find my dream!

Help me to shatter this darkness,

To smash this night,

To break this shadow

Into a thousand lights of sun,

Into a thousand whirling dreams of sun!
