to the person who said he killed himself...

he didnt kill himself, he died of cancer. unless you're saying he killed

Just a comment to the poster "Andrew." Langston Hughes did NOT kill

I know this is an amazing poem... it has helped me alot, but i was thinking
about what some of the comments said, about how langston hughes was a
strong man. well he was, but clearly this poem didnt meen much in the end,
becouse he killed himself. sorry to be brutal but if he never killed
himself i think this poem would be more meeningfull... btw mykee is pritty
cool guy.

In the poem Still Here langston Hughes is trying to say that he is going to
keep up fighting and he is not giving up.

i think this poem is really good because it shows that life is full of
unwanted things and unfortunate occasions and even though we go through all
these things, we're "still here"
