I didn't like this poem at first but i got better as i read it. the feel
the world should be all equal in sense that blacks and whites and etc are
treated the same.

I see not many visitors to this well where the water is still sweet.I also
am from Alabama,and still reside;where the landscape has changed and the
feilds are now full of factories the necks about them are still tall with a
lighter shade of red, some ceader and the faint smell of pine in the wake
of a southern rain,and Langston Hughes speaks right on from his grave about
those very things that puzzle me,(now) in my fourties trying hard to change
my fortold fate,I wait,and wait for to wittness the Daybreak in Alabama.

I think this poem is what the world needs. I like How the tittle really
sets us up for the exsplaination of this poem. A new way a new beginning.
I also really like the emphasis on black and white and how racist the world
really is and how it needs to be changed

I love how this poem represents what the world should be like and how
everyone no matter their race will be treated the same. It's not my
favorite Langston Hughes poem but nonetheless, I do like it.

i really enjoyed this poem.I live in Alabama and I know that although
people may not see eye to eye, they still try to make the best of things.
God made each and every one of us different, whether it be our skin color
or something as simple as our favorite foods.In this poem Hughes has
definately showed us that we should unite and be as one. I absolutely love
this poem.
