Dream Deferred

by Langston Hughes

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?
