Acceptance

Poem By Langston Hughes

God in His infinite wisdom
Did not make me very wise-
So when my actions are stupid
They hardly take God by surprise

A humourous poem....good to read

And my old mother's black.
If ever I cursed my white old man
I take my curses back.

I, Too

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
