a dream deferred


When I think about this one question,  I wonder what happened to a few of my dreams. I also wonder what will happen to some of the dreams that I've had to put off even longer still.

Life is a series of dreams deferred. What happens if we set aside the dream and let ourselves become discouraged and never reach toward the goal? How often does that happen? Never trying is the real problem. There's nothing wrong with waiting awhile to have an opportunity to turn a dream into reality. 

Sometimes, waiting is the best thing. We just can't or don't want to see it in the moment. I'm still working on a few dreams that have seemed impossible to achieve. And I won't give up, because who wants dried up raisins? No one, that's who.

My dream deferred will be even more sweet once it comes to fruition. I just know it.

    1. I'm glad you liked it. I was wondering if it was coherent to other people. The idea has been floating around in my head for awhile, so the words don't seem sufficient.
