My sweet Sol:

My soul

emerged – east of the Nile river

deeper – in the Red sea

Nesting in the wilderness

Hatching in milk and honey

I fastened my shoes in Passover

Borrowed gold, exchanged my foreign speech,

not bruised, marked or curse

Yet-upright my soul stood proudly

My soul has a name in Canaan- that’s mighty sweet.

 

STILL HERE -Langston Hughes

STILL HERE BY Langston Hughes- 1902-1967

I been scared and battered.
My hopes the wind done scattered.
Snow has friz me,
Sun has baked me,

Looks like between ’em they done
Tried to make me

Stop laughin’, stop lovin’, stop livin’–
But I don’t care!
I’m still here!

Langston Hughes
