What Happens

November 27, 2008
By Kirsten Lambui, Shirley, NY

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it sputter out like a candle,
That has no wick to burn?
Or is it like a boomerang,
That will eventually return.
Is it like a watch,
That hasn't been wound?
Or does it run away,
Never to be found?
Maybe it's like a movie on pause,
Waiting for someone to push play.
