A Dream Deferred

A Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes


  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?
