Favorite poem:

“I dream a world where man

No other man will scorn,

Where love will bless the earth

And peace its paths adorn I dream a world where all

Will know sweet freedom’s way,

Where greed no longer saps the soul

Nor avarice blights our day.

A world I dream where black or white

Whatever race you be,

Will share the bounties of the earth And every man is free,

Where wretchedness will hang its head

And joy, like a pearl,

Attends the needs of all mankind

— Of such I dream, my world!”

—Langston Hughes
