“What happens to a dream deferred ?”
Does it haunt you and give you chills at night?
Does it weaken your limbs
And leave you vulnerable for the fight of life?
Does it bleed crimson red
Through your faded white smile ?
Does it go away or does it linger awhile ?
Does it ignite a bigger dream
Pure and unscathed ?
Does it guide you to a road of graciousness
New, bright, and paved?
“Maybe it just sags
Like a heavy load
Or does it explode,” regenerate and multiply at the node?
