Dream Defferred

Dream Deferred 
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?

One thought on “Dream Defferred

  1. A dream deferred …. many things can happen to it as you well noted. However, you missed this option …… We are all made of energy, dreams are energy too. A dream deferred turns …. and becomes a new dream!! The energy that was there will transform into another dream …. an attainable one, this time!! Never forget!! 🙂
