Langston Hughes’s “Salvation”

Yesterday I published a piece called “Choosing My Religion.” My friend, Luri read it on Facebook and asked if I’d ever read “Salvation” by Langston Hughes. I hadn’t, but rectified that mistake immediately. Mr. Hughes has always been one of my favorite poets, this piece I’ve linked to just makes him more so.

This first one’s my favorite:

The next one needs a fervent “amen!”

  1. I am not so much a poetry fan but ever since childhood Langston Hughes has been my favourite poet. His words are so wise and they seep into the cracks like no others, and his meaning is crystal clear. Thank you for sharing such wonderful words.
