    Hello every body, (especially the 4 th year students)

    Dreams! can any body give me the exact definition of this word? Of course not (I mean may be) , dream has a very vast meaning and it depends from a person to another and from vision to an other one.
    Langston try the simplify as he can using a very simple language and easy combinations without missing the point which make the poem reachable linguistically and emotionally.
    When you speak about dreams it’s like you are entering a mysterious and fascinating world where the rules of reality do not apply.. By understanding your dreams and being convinced, you will gain a better perspective on your life.
    I realise that my dreams are unique. No other individual can have my background, my emotions, or my experiences. Every dream is connected with my own 'reality'. Thus, it is important to draw from your dreams your personal life and experiences. We have to believe on our selfs then dreams come true.
    Remember that a dream unifies the body, mind, and spirit. It provides us with insight into ourselves and a means for self-exploration. In planing your dreams, you will have a better understanding and discovery of your true self try to be always optimist and see the life from the right angle. So stay awhile - explore, discover, have fun, make friends, and find out what's in YOUR dream? !

    Hello; I think that' dreams ' is the best poem that I've read because I really approciate the poet's vision about the value of dreams in our life.I think that a person can't be an effective person without dreams because the future belongs only to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.My advice to every person is to keep on dreaming forever and to trust in their dreams because as you start to persue a dream your life wakes up.

    this poem is more meaningful with its simple words. It gives you the power to go on, Dreams permit the impossible, and make you believe in your self. Without dreams we are in danger.
    thank you.

    What is life without dreams? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? it is a hopeless and meaningless life, that shaped by very narrow limits if it doesn't contained dreams.So, every one has the need for dreaming to keep surviving.the poem is short but very meaningful. (Report) Reply

    It's a wonderful poem which explores the idea of dreams in a terrific way. So, deams are necessary in the life of human being and continuity of better life, but dreams without action are just dreams, if we want to make dreams a reality we must have to take action to achieve our goal.In reality, our life needs dreams to stay on life.

    Hi, everybody. It's fabulous poem its seemed as romantic poem in the same time shows how can changes conditions for us, and benefit from our dreams.Even if Hughes was a writer committed to his people, American Negroes, who suffered under segregation and discriminatory laws. But the poems take a wide meaning even in our life because dreams that’s what we needs in pains and darkness dreams helps us to do not lose ourselves dreams in every times and everywhere. So dreams for a nice future…………. (Report) Reply
