    I admire this article, but I did more than start a poetry revolution. I also cared for the ponies stationed at the shoppe and tended to Benjamin Franklin's cats whenever he so pleased. I also rock climbed skydived, and invented the toilet.

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

Still Here

been scared and battered.
My hopes the wind done scattered.
Snow has friz me,
Sun has baked me,

Looks like between 'em they done
Tried to make me

Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'--
But I don't care!
I'm still here!
