    Langston, u wrote this piece especially for me. I have soared above the storms, have trodden in the searing deserts: the fueling force being this poem... For when dreams die, men r like soulless creatures... (Report) Reply

    Our dreams help us drive forward, the goal on the horizon. But we can not lose ourselves to those dreams. Otherwise we miss our own life; Go to Google, search The Truth Contest, click the first result, begin reading The Present (Report) Reply

    Salute to Hughes who conveys great, 'saving' concepts! I will not dissapoint, Hughes. For every course will I cling to a dream for when it leaps off, sanity leaps off and life becomes sound and fury signifying nothing. (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.
