Dream Deferred

Langston Hughes' poem a Dream Deferred was one that was my favorite.Growing up, it has changed meanings over time, or rather, I understand it in different ways throughout my life. The poem is below:

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?


For me  a dream differed  explodes. And it explodes on other people: Meaning that other people begin to feel the consequences of your deferment. Never get to a point that someone or something defers your dreams!

That is all.

And people didn't use their real names but instead had names like:"my life is how it is, don b jeALous." You would have to change your password or get a new account because hackers and spammers got into it all the time. Before we could even delete our profiles, or think about giving up social networking for good, a savior called Facebook came in, shoving Myspace to the side. This social networking site boasts a membership of 350 million users if that were a country, it would be the third largest in the world, only behind India and China.
However, since its founding, Facebook has done some remodeling, one that many users complain about. I remember the first wipers of a Facebook change, and I was telling anyone who would listen how unfair and bogus it was. Pe…
