A Dream Deferred<br />By Langston Hughes<br />
What Happens to a Dream Deferred?<br />
Does it dry up<br />
like a raisin in the sun?<br />
Or fester like a sore-<br />
And then run?<br />
Does it stink like rotten meat?<br />
Or crust and sugar over-<br />
like a syrupy sweet?<br />
Maybe it just sags<br />
like a heavy load.<br />
……………<br />
Or does it explode?<br />
