american history

let america be america again.
let it be the dream it used to be.
let it be the pioneer on the plain
seeking a home where he himself is free.

let america be the dream the dreamers dreamed--
let it be that great strong land of love
where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme
that any man be crushed by one above.

o, let my land be a land where Liberty
is crowned with no false patriotic wreath,
but opportunity is real, and life is free,
equality is in the air we breathe.

-langston hughes
