    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

    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
