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. 

By: Langston Hughes

I remember first being introduced to this poem in literature class during 7th grade (well over 15 years ago). It has stuck with me over the years and is definitely one of my all time favorites. It has inspired me and kept me motivated in pursuit of my dreams. I encourage each of you to never give up on your dreams. Don't let anyone tell you they are impossible. Like the old adage says, "If you can dream it, you can achieve it". Happy Monday All!
