Write A Page That Comes Out of You

In his poem, ”Theme for Lesson B”, Langston Hughes quotes a classroom instructor who tell the students:

  Go home and write
    a page tonight.
    And let that page come out of you—
    Then, it will be true.

The student then says, ''I wonder if it is so simple,'' and talks about his life, coming up north from the South, being a ''colored'' man -- the only one in his class, his living in a room at the Y in Harlem. 
Can you write a page that comes out of you?
