Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 2.17

 

langston-hughes-let-america

I first read this poem right after the election and thought how timely now as when it was originally written. This exerpt was posted today on FaceBook and is even more timely after the past week … and the past two days for our immigrants. Read and respond in a manner comfortable to you. To read the entire poem go to this website — https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/let-america-be-america-again/ Also, I featured this poem in the current issue of Downtown LA Life’s Poetry Connection — downtownlalife.tripod.com/id728.html … this will be available until February 3rd.

Ok … you guys know the drill … go forth and write!

You have until Sunday, February 6, 2017 to share your writing … or when you feel the mood strike even after the 6th.

All prompts are active and feel free to go back to earlier ones if you have not been one of my Writing Rebels … the only challenge here is between you and what you have to write … the rules are few and open to everyone!

*For those new to this challenge, please read the particulars under the third tab that says “read first” https://annieswritingchallenge.wordpress.com/writing-outside-the-lines/ then return to the prompt page to post your response or your web site link in the comments section.

  2. I kind of came at this from a different perspective … it must suck to have promises made that are never kept. I mean we all know what it’s like, but to be an entire race of people? I think of Standing rock … being Black … Hispanic … all the broken promises made to them & then I am ashamed to bemoan any that have been broken to me. Anyway, I tried to capture that feeling & don’t think I came very close to it … but for what it’s worth. This was my attempt.
