"A 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?

By Langston Hughes

I'm done answering all aspects of this poem but just stuck on these two questions. I only need to know the structure of this poem and the point of view of this poem?

Thank you!
