Langston Hughes - The Blues

When the shoe strings break
On both your shoes
And you're in a hurry-
That's the blues.

When you go to buy a candy bar
And you've lost the dime you had-
Slipped through a hole in your pocket somewhere-
That's the blues, too, and bad!

i think that you have some really nice poem... especially the one called "Too Blue." i think that it was a really nice poem and that is how i am feeling right now... plus life is not as easy as you think it is... you might think that no on cares but the truth is that all the people around you still cares a lot.
