What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?
Langston Hughes


Voices too long compressed
rise in rich thunder.
Distances shrink.

Their bombed out buildings
grow closer in the strict structure
of purpled knuckles and clenched fists.

See how near our differences,
Uniformed,  un-informed,
Not just stones break bones.

In this society of more
than ever before
there is a current stirring.

Voices too long compressed
rise in rich thunder
and we have the answer…
what happens to a dream deferred.
