Quote from the book

There are many beautiful quotes in the book hit some could just make a girls heart melt.Like this one by: Langston Huges Tell me

why should it be my loneliness, why should it be my song, why should it be my dream deferred overlong? the main reason why i picked this quote from my book Hit is because it has a meaning of everything about the book this poem is what sets my charters in place and what had all happened in my book.
