A Dream Deferred
Modeled after the poem by Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it sink
Like a boat in the ocean?
Or squawk like a seagull-
And then soar away?
Does it linger in the back like a shadow?
Or does it just fly up, up and away
Like a balloon?
Maybe it just never dies
Like the endless blue sky
Or does it just sail away over the horizon?
