What really happens when dreams are deferred?
When a dream is "deferred", it goes away. Sometimes only for a short period of time, other times it can be permanently. It will always be the person with the dream that will postpone it. A parent can forbid and disapprove of a dream.. A government can outlaw the dreams of an individual(s). But a dream can never go away unless the person who has that dream is willing to give it it.
