They'll see how beautiful I am / And be ashamed


I don't walk this way any more. The corner of Davey and Murray Streets, Hobart. July 2013.

We're off chasing Great White Sharks today. Fingers crossed that we all make it back in one piece!

I, Too, Langston Hughes

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I'll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody'll dare
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"
Then.

Besides,
They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed--

I, too, am America.
