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?

– Langston Hughes

Don’t sit on your dream anymore! Tomorrow is not promised. Don’t be stifled by fear, and don’t fall into the deadly trap of procrastination. Now is the time to make your move. Now is the time to act. BAD things happen to dreams deferred.
