Poetry Friday: Tired by Langston Hughes

I am so tired of waiting,
Aren't you,
For the world to become good
And beautiful and kind?
Let us take a knife
And cut the world in two -
And see what worms are eating
At the rind.

- Langston Hughes

Dear readers, and writers, and bloggers, and teachers, and librarians, and publishers, and mentors: A lot of people are feeling the weight of the world right now. Lend them your ear, and your shoulder. Let them share their stories with you, and share your stories with them. Lend them books that have helped you get through hard times, and encourage them to read, and write, and speak, and share. Words can heal. Believe in the power of books. Keep hope alive.
