April Rain Song Poem

If My Dream Was Deferred

If I had a dream deferred I would push harder to realize that dream. I would work harder and put everything into it. For example I really want to go to college. I run to help me get there. Most people don't comprehend how hard I work for this goal. When that dream is harder to reach I work harder to get there.
