Democracy
by Langston Hughes 

Democracy will not come
Today, this year
Nor ever
Through compromise and fear.

I have as much right
As the other fellow has
To stand
On my two feet
And own the land.

I tire so of hearing people say,

Tomorrow is another day.
I do not need my freedom when I’m dead.
I cannot live on tomorrow’s bread.

Freedom
Is a strong seed
Planted
In a great need.

I live here, too.
I want freedom
Just as you.

我有与其他同辈
一样多的权利
用我的双脚
站立
并拥有这片土地

我厌倦听人说
让事物按照它们的轨迹
明天是另外一天。
我不需要我的自由当我已经死去
我不能靠明天的面包生活

自由
是一颗强大的种子
种在
一种伟大的需要里

我也生活在这里。
我想要自由
像你一样想要。

她的绷带藏起两个化脓的溃疡
曾经它们也许是眼睛
