“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” –Langston Hughes

Do not amputate your dreams for they can help carry you. They can fill you with hope and push you towards a brighter tomorrow. Remember, every action, every dream, every building, house, car, book, business, pyramid once began with a simple thought. These thoughts and or dreams are then pursued by a persistence from within to see the mind image come to life. Situations in life may seem to break your dreams wings, but patch that wing up and allow them to continually take flight. Do not allow broken dreams damper and wilt your life. Allow your wings to heal and fill your life with a bright outlook. It is a sad life if you live without dreams. Allow Langston Hughes to inspire you as he had a dream to be treated with love and appreciation. His work was, and is, brilliant and I have read him for years to remind myself of the struggles and positive outlook he had. Things may have seemed like an endless battle and they may still seem like an uphill battle, but don’t give up, life is ever-changing. Hughes decided to view life’s hardships in a positive manner. He visualized change. You can have flight within your dreams. If you give up before you even attempt it, then you’ve lost half the battle. If you see change and visualize it within yourself, you’ve won half the battle. Don’t give up!

I, Too, Sing America
Langston Hughes, 1902 – 1967
I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.
