A dreamed deferred

Modeled after the poem by Langston Huges


What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it snap at you

Like a crazed dog?

Or circle over head like a black cloud-

And then bite you?

Does it hit like a linebacker?

Or flee-

Like a rabbit?

Maybe it just runs

Like a cross country runner

Or does it make life a blur?
