“What happens to a dream deferred?”
Is the question he asked me so long ago,
Long before my current form was formed
Long before there was even a he and she
To make ME.
Still, from a faraway place
I heard the question.
So here and now I turn towards the sky
“What happens to a dream deferred?
It just so happens, that they go on into
Neither created nor destroyed
Cycling through lifetimes
Never coming to an end,
Flowing through one to the next,
Until the day
A dear spirit comes along
What the previous spirits could not
Or would not.
What happens to a dream deferred?
I’d like to think my thoughts as theory
For I have no intention of ever really
