    We might lose our dreams once in a while, but we are bound to swam across even the deepest seas to reach out our dreams

    Poems like this should bolster all of us. The language, imagery, cadence, sytax, etc. are simplistic and meaningful. You don't have to be T.S. Elliot to write great poetry.

    Langston Hughes is my favorite poet, and this poem is so deep, so true. I truly love this poem for it rings true in my own ears.

    WOW! This last line:
    Help me to shatter this darkness,
    To smash this night,
    To break this shadow
    Into a thousand lights of sun,
    Into a thousand whirling dreams
    Of sun!

    Just... AMAZING!
