A Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes

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?
