...a Dream Deferred

Updated: Sep 28, 2020

Finding inspiration in this today: "Harlem" by: Langston Hughes, 1951

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up

Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore--

And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or crust and sugar over--

like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags

like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?
