A Dream Deferred

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

A person finally wake up and know not all dreams can be reality so they just fade away as u grow up and get wiser … don’t u think?

Neoark said...

sometimes i just forget i'm in a dream, but I wonder, how does it feels to live in a dream that lasts over ten years...

It expands to devour every other dream, living little to dream for. We always pine for the one that slipped away.
On secound though, I'll take an unrealized dream over a disappointing one. Aren't they all, though?
I need to ponder on it some more.

living = leaving

i think it stays in the back of your head and comes up again no matter how big or small a dream it is..

Lost b2amreeka. said...

totally agree with gone bonkers because
alot of times I wake up and don't remember a dream but then during the day something reminds me.

p.anony omg that happens to me too sometimes I have dreams about the randomest ppl, w the next
day i get a random msg from them like a week or
2 ago my moms friends daughter that I haven't seen in months 7ilamt feeha, I woke up I saw a missed call w 2 msgs from the girls mom ;|
