I liked the poem Harlem. The poem made me feel motivated to go out and do something about dreams I want to accomplish. However, corona-virus is making that hard. I think the author is trying to tell the reader to not wait to accomplish your dreams.  If you wait it is going to make your life more difficult. You will always wonder what would have happened if I followed that dream. Those thoughts will build and build until you explode with anger or desire to achieve your dream.  To me it is unclear why the poem is named Harlem. The author might be trying to say that at the time it was written life was hard in Harlem and people couldn’t accomplish their dreams.
