I die.

“Because my mouth 

Is wide with laughter

And my throat 

Is deep with song,

You do not think

I suffer after

I have held my pain

So long?

Because my mouth 

Is wide with laughter

You do not hear 

My inner cry?

Because my feet 

Are gay with dancing 

You do not know

I die?” 

― Langston Hughes
