She,In the dark,Found lightbrighter than many ever see

In the dark,
Found light
brighter than many ever see.

She, Within herself,
Found loveliness,
Through the soul’s own mastery.

And now the world receives
From her dower:
The message of the strength
Of inner power.”

~Langston Hughes

“What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or does it explode?”
