Problems Poem by Langston Hughes

Problems

Rating: 3.5


2 and 2 are 4.
4 and 4 are 8.

But what would happen
If the last 4 was late?

And how would it be
If one 2 was me?

Or if the first 4 was you
Divided by 2?

I think it means that you are stronger with more people but when you subtract someone you are not as strong.

It is showing that every one is equal and that more people is stronger then one.
