    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


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


Democracy will not come
Today, this year
Nor ever
Through compromise and fear.

I have as much right
As the other fellow has
To stand
On my two feet
