Despite the Dream
Words by Langston Hughes

I’m the one who dreamed,
a dream so strong, so brave, so true, it sings
For I’m the one who came,
To build a “homeland of the free.” (The free?, Who said the free? Not me?)

All the dreams we’ve dreamed
And all the songs we’ve sung, and hopes we’ve held
The [throngs] who have nothing—
Except a dream that’s almost dead today.

O, let America be America again—
The land that never has been yet—
And yet must be—the land where every man is free.
Must bring back our mighty dream again.


from The Hope I Hold, released June 28, 2019
