Dream Deferred

December 11, 2008
What happens to a dream deferred?
Location- Lake Jackson, Texas

Does it get was away
Like the waves in the morning
Or become trash like the cans in the way-
And then blow away by the hurricane wind?
Does it melt like the Baskin Robbins strawberry ice cream in the heat?
Or sit in the mall
Like the poor people do?
Maybe it just becomes worse and worse
Like every time I go back
Or does it drive away back to Kansas?

Modeled after Langston Hughes
