    I can remember the first time I heard one of his poems. It was as if the voice within me was read aloud. In the Harlem renaissance of the 1920s black and proud. I see you I see me, A reflection of what I may be. Genius is as genius does, I once heard your genius born out in word. I wonder do you know the impact you have the lives you touch. You give expression to our innermost feelings in a way that we recognize them true. Mr. Langston Hughes genius is you. By Andrew

    Why can't I find Langston Hughes' short but very powerful poem titled End? Could you possibly include it? Thank you very much.

    one of my favourite poets, social commentary at its best at a time when it was hardly popular particularly in the US

Best Poem of Langston Hughes

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Read the full of Dreams

Problems

2 and 2 are 4.
4 and 4 are 8.

But what would happen
If the last 4 was late?

And how would it be
If one 2 was me?

Or if the first 4 was you
Divided by 2?
