    Hi to evry body, Ithink that the poem is amazing because it contains ameaning tha evry body needs it.Life without dreams is no thing; whenever we think and live are dreams.Besides; all we know the life is hard, but does not give up and loose our selves.no? we must resist and think; becaese dreams does not come without thinking, simply our life full of lucks and apportionities.

    i really approciate this poem as well as i am proud to read it because life is full of hope and the key of it is dreams; furthermore, dreams will open the door for imagination; so as long as we are alive, we must keep in dreaming and we should never give up'whenever there is a dream, there is a hope' (Report) Reply

    hi, dreams have an important value in our life, the one who has no dream has no futur and no life we must keep dreaming.however, the poet personified the value of dreams and used the suitable metaphor to attract the reader.so, dreams are the air that we breathe, if we lose them we will lose our life.

    A wonderful poem because it talks about dreams. I think that dreams are very important, they are as a candle that lighting our life, if we do not have dreams in our life, we don't have hope so, when there is dream, there is a hope, there is a purpose in life. (Report) Reply

    I've been really profoundly impressed by Hughes' DREAMS, for it gives another sense to my life. Everyday's perils usually bring about people's despair, frustration and depression; however, DREAMS does lift our spirits to see hope, strength and new horizons everywhere.So, ' DREAM! ' since there's nothing to lose. (Report) Reply

    Peace be upon you, longstons' dreams poem proves that length never limit meanings. Dreams tend to be a strange concept within poverty we live in and hard times. May be we are in need to dreams, but we lost the way long time ago. We really feel frozen without them, but we are afraid to be lost if hang on them. May be when you dream you gona reach them some day. Our dreams people stick always to the real life, to what we can put on the table, and hope to live longer to see our children grow up. At least for us dreams stay dreams. You gona think that i'm too pessimistic, i just do not neglect the other side of life. (Report) Reply

    'Dreams' in its first reading it may mean nothing to majority of people but after reading Langston Hughes' poem 'Dreams' we feel greatness. Personally, I do agree with him, to dreamis to make it true situation, realize our hopes and wishes it shows that nothing is impossible in our life without dreams nothing will happen and nothing will exist.So, you should dream and keep on dreaming and cling on it, your soul will be enriched with hopes and the belief that we can have and can do every thing.Keep dreaming to be alive.

    This poem has universal significance.Each one can live this poem from anywhere and any time.Dreams are different but if you take them all it is the same.I say to someone who do not believe in dreams he is hopeless and in danger which means the bird does not fly. (Report) Reply
