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?

"What happens to a dream deferred?" Do you agree with the author? Explain your answer.

My answer is I say dreams deferred are still dreams they do not have to be labeled as failure. In some cases deferring a dream can be a bigger blessing than a dream coming true.
Is my answer good enough?
