Grade 8 Democracy

Read the following poem 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,
Let things take their course.
Tomorrow is another day.
I do not need my freedom when I'm dead.
I cannot live on tomorrow's bread.

Is a strong seed
In a great need.
I live here, too.
I want freedom
Just as you.

What is the theme of this poem?
  1. A man wants to have freedom before it is too late.
  2. Be patient.
  3. All people desire freedom and deserve equal rights during their lifetime.
  4. Democracy
