    Nothing is greater and powerful than your dreams. Follow your dreams, be what you are meant to be. (Report) Reply

    Dreams are reflection of our thoughts.
    of our aims
    so try to fix our thoughts and aims.

    Hold fast to dreams you dreamers. Hold fast to your dreams. for if dreams die life is a baron field covered with snow. Hold fast to dreams. (Report) Reply

    So true. If we didn't have dream's to try and make come true there would be nothing to look forward to, no where to go to, truly like a bird without flight and a frozen field that nothing can live on. (Report) Reply

    Could our dreams be possibly interpreted as that which we lack? Some sort of future state we wish to live in that we currently do not? We should all be content with our present no matter how difficult it may be. Because dreams do come true, and what I mean by that is we do sometimes get what we wish for. What then? ? We pursue our dreams so life may be a broken-winged bird once we realize our dream? Does anyone else get what i'm saying? (Report) Reply

    I'm all in favour of dreams. But can life without dreams be like a broken-winged bird that cannot fly, as well as a barren field frozen with snow, all within the space of so few words? Short, but not all that sweet. (Report) Reply

    Be still and awaken to the dream of who you are. Other dreams come and go like so much fluff blowing in the wind. (Report) Reply

    Dreams are all we have
    When life becomes a bit dreary
    And in those moments we live
    Even if we be called quite sleepy

    Write about this poem...it's flow, it's voice....comment on this. Just do it...as Nike would so cleverly self promote. (Report) Reply

    Yes, I have a dream that the poets on this site will comment on Langston's poem and not try to get folks
    to read their own stuff...self promotion is not appropriate here. Take a little time to absorb the inspiration and
    skills of your betters first.
