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, Dream Deferred
I’m tired of being Over It
When I really want to leave it all behind
I’m sick of listening to those who don’t deserve my time.
To say I care too much is an understatement
To say I don’t love enough is untrue
I can’t keep making people Happy, when all I feel is Blue.
Should I just keep pressing on?
And just wait my turn.
And hope that in my sorrow, there’s a lesson to be learned
Will my Patience be rewarded?
Or my efforts merely thwarted
They say that Love Don’t Cost a Thing
And I still can’t afford it.
But this time, won’t you Save Me?
And show me how Love works
Can you teach me how to smile with my Heart
And how to find Happiness through the Hurt.
