    Is that really a poem?

    I love this poem and I love Langston Hughes. The brevity of the poem, its conciseness deliver the message powerfully. Had it been longer it might have not had the same impact. (Report) Reply

    A dream is vital to have in life...
    We should always have one or we have nothing to work for
    I truly love this poem
