Langston Hughes As I Grew Older Shadow. I am black.

I lie down in the shadow. No longer the light of my dream before me, Above me.

Only the thick wall. Only the shadow. My hands! My dark hands!

Break through the wall! Find my dream! Help me to shatter this darkness, To smash this night,

To break this shadow Into a thousand lights of sun, Into a thousand whirling dreams

Of sun! Biography It was a long time

ago. I have almost forgotten my dream. But it was there

then, In front of me, Bright like a sun-- My dream.

And then the wall rose, Rose slowly, Slowly, Between me and

my dream. Rose until it touched the sky-The wall. Poem Analysis

Theme in my Creative Media

Our Hope can Prevail over our own Despair Metaphor: The Wall

Imagery: Sun and Light RECAP
