Langston Hughes on MLK Day

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?

    I still believe that dreams deferred are not dreams denied. Keeping the faith and praying until something happens (PUSH).
