My favorite poem is: Hope is the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson. I have never had any favorite poem before, but this one connected with me. This is my favorite poem as it describes hope by using an array of beautiful metaphors to enhance its effects. While it is true that many people are living in an extremely challenging and appalling conditions. What keeps people going on in such difficult times is the glimmer of hope that things will change. This is one thought that came to mind when first reading the poem and this is what attracted me to it and as it relates to any hopeless situations it really does apply to all aspects of life.
