    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

    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. (Report) Reply

    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. (Report) Reply
