    This poem is so short but in its length describes life in its fullness. (Report) Reply

    I dont mean to offend anybody, but I don't like this poem at all. Yes, the meaning behind it is slightly inspiring. The words themselves, however, are too simple and childish. The rhyming sounds forced and I'm certain my 11 year old sister could have thought up this poem. not to say I don't like Langston Hughes; some of his poems are good. But this is not one of them.

    Hi, I had to analyze this song in my English studies
    any way I had composed the poem
    Love and peace
