A dream deferred...

Harlem
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
Atlanta
What happens to a dream deferred you ask?
It takes a nap
and sleeps.
Waiting for the day
it can ripen for you to eat.
to enjoy the rich spoils of
hard work for your treat.
Dreams aren't deferred
just put on hold

-Hazey
