I like how the poem has a deep meaning even if you don’t understand what the author is trying to say. I like the poem because it’s short but has a very deep meaning to the few sentences and words the poem has. I think the author was trying to say that it is about how African Americans “put off” dreams of other people who aren’t African american. I think that the poem resembles how the dreams would have looked like. I think that the African Americans don’t have anything to do with putting off someone’s dream because they are also humans they aren’t pausing anyone’s dream just other people think that and they blame it one them.The one thing that I was confused about was how Harlem was related to the rest of the poem. I think the affect of the poem and the music can really show how people who are not colored and treated differently and they blame everything on the colored people because they are different.
