Langston Hughes: Poems

I, too, sing to American

Why do you suppose the speaker uses only on word, then, to make up line 14?

Hughes has a few lines with one word. Are you referring to the word "besides"? The speaker is adding that people will see how beautiful he is, a Negro American, and be ashamed for thinking that he is not an American.
