"Tired" by Langston Hughes

In honor of National Poetry Month, I am featuring special poems by special poets each Wednesday. Here is "Tired," a timely, topical piece of poetry by Langston Hughes, written in 1930.

by Langston Hughes

I am so tired of waiting,
Aren't you,
For the world to become good
And beautiful and kind?
Let us take a knife
And cut the world in two -
And see what worms are eating
At the rind.
