    Majida, Langston Hughes is a famous and beloved poet who passed away nearly 50 years ago. I doubt he will respond or write any new poems, but he lives on forever in the amazing poems he did leave us. (Report) Reply

    In all things it is better to hope than to despair.
    - Goethe

    This is what I think of with this poem. Even if dreaming and hoping leads to nothing in the end, dreaming will still keep us motivated. An unmotivated life is an unhappy life.

    Even this poem appears short it contains an inspiring message.These simple words really ignite hope in our
    mind, fill courage in our soul, awake our capabilities. Each time I read it, it truly uplifts my confidence and
    faith on myself. It calls for energize our self with realistic dreams and unleash our potential to conquer
    our world. It is like a candle light for desperate and broken minds.

    I enjoyed this poem. The poet didn't try to be sensitive or dramatic, like most do. Sharp and sweet, not too lengthy. Got his idea across. (Report) Reply
