Langston Hughes (1902-1967)

Angola Question Mark

Don't know why I,
Must still stand
With my back
To the last frontier
Of fear
In my own land.

Don't know why I,
Must turn into
A Mau Mau
And lift my hand
Against my fellow man
To live in my own land.

But it is so-
And being so
I know
For you and me
