A Dream Deferred

Dream Deferred

What happens to a dream deferred?
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?

Being Man, Dad, & Husband has many perks,

but some days...

you have to make tough calls,

and not worry about the feelings you hurt,

and put hopes and dreams on hold,

in the name of adding clarity

with hope for a better day

to do the same and even more

even if it causes the one who loves you to cry

even if it makes you the bad guy

in spite of all the good you want

as the servant of all in your home...

...yesterday was one of those days.
