Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes A Metaphorical Slideshow
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 just explode?
