I dream a world

by Jackie Meeker November. 08, 2007 3053 views

I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn.
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom's way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind–
Of such I dream, my world!

~ Langston Hughes

Great idea. Wonderful way to soften the hardness of the barbed wire. To me it speaks to me saying that the world Langston Hughes dreamt of is possible. But we must use what we have to make it possible.

I really enjoy Langston Hughes and this poem and Dream Deferred are two of my favorites. I love the photo you've used to illustrate his words.
