Dream Deferred

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?

Langston Hughes
