My People - Poem by Langston Hughes

The night is beautiful,
So the faces of my people.

The stars are beautiful,
So the eyes of my people.

Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people.

    It's a great work by Mr Hugh's. Beauty lies in the eyes of a sensitive person, not in the dimensions. Thanks for the sharing of the poem. (Report) Reply

    Short but significantly powerful with its message for minority empowerment, in a few lines Mr. Hughes conveys a reassuring message to those who have been marginalized by the mainstream strata of society. I don't think this is so much Black lives matter as much as Black is Beautiful, the soul of a person is the most beautiful thing. I cant say much more, but this is a great piece to be read especially in divisive times. (Report) Reply

    Yes, all the peoples of the world are beautiful... old people, young people, sad people, happy people, handicapped people, people who are not handicapped. Look at pictures of these people- their beauty will blow you away. It helps, of course, if you look at them with eyes of love. (Report) Reply
