A Dreamer Deferred

What happens to A Dreamer Deferred?


Do they live in a constant state of fear
Like a criminal who committed a crime ?
Or go off like a bomb

in the space of time?

Does it kill them to know that life isn't fair?
Or does it push one to the verge
of despair?


Maybe it just cuts
like a knife.


Or does it end a life?


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Langston Hughes poem A Dream Deferred, inspired to write my version of A Dreamer Deferred and it basically runs through the trials of how a person deteriorates when their dreams do not come true. Summing up all their thoughts, I might revise it but I kind of like it.
