The Deep Thoughts That are Always There When We Need Them

Whether you’re writing poetry or reading it, there’s something about poems that capture the mind and soul. They can provide solace and understanding when you’re faced with life’s challenges and complexities. Further, they can inspire deep reflection, interpretation, and perspective.

Perhaps, poems are powerful because they tend to be short and abstract. Therefore, we have no choice but to gather as much meaning as we can from only a couple sentences or pages. We have no choice but to dig deep.

Ever since I was introduced to poetry way back in elementary school, I’ve found myself coming back to it. Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate how cathartic and therapeutic they can be for the mind and soul.

Stay tuned!

That being said, I am excited to introduce a new category titled: “Living Life Poetically.” This is where I will be sharing my poems along with my interpretation and inspiration for them.

To kick things off, here is an inspiring poem by Langston Hughes.

I will leave it to your own interpretation. And I encourage you to take it all in–to read, reflect, and restore.

Dreams

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
