Dreams may be figments of our imaginations, as the human mind has the ability to conjure up a myriad of images. They may be nonsensical. Neverthless, they can be entertaining just like a movie. Besides, certain dreams can evoke positive feelings. 'Flying' dreams or the ability to fly in our dreams is an exhilarating and liberating experience. Dreams add variety and spice to an otherwise dull and monotonous life. The benefits of dreams can best be summed up in the Langston hughes' poem, '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.
-Langston hughes
