    dreams easy to spell difficult to realise, with Hughes i feel that at least i have something to live for and fight to make it comes true.

    this is really a good poem.It push us to keep dreaming all the want to realize your goal until you succeed; no give up.this poem intoduces the ideal dream that all the human being want to achieve.

    Hello, I think that particular poem is wonderful one.This poem is a sudden truth feeling which is expressed by Langston Hughes without any hisitation.Because it really touches our life and gives us more hopes.

    hi I found this poem really wonderful it gives me hope and power to be ambitious, because dreams are like the breath of human being.We can not live and stay in this life without having dream to atchieve and realise it.Thank you for your advice I will keep it in my mind

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


Democracy will not come
Today, this year
Nor ever
Through compromise and fear.

I have as much right
As the other fellow has
To stand
On my two feet
