    Why can't I find Langston Hughes' short but very powerful poem titled End? Could you possibly include it? Thank you very much.

    one of my favourite poets, social commentary at its best at a time when it was hardly popular particularly in the US

Best Poem of Langston Hughes


Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Read the full of Dreams


2 and 2 are 4.
4 and 4 are 8.

But what would happen
If the last 4 was late?

And how would it be
If one 2 was me?

Or if the first 4 was you
Divided by 2?
