Broken Dreams: Wonderings and Doings

A compare and contrast between

“Broken Dreams” & “Harlem”

By:

Jeremiah Greer & Trent Ellis


Harlem
“Harlem”

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does is dry up

Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore--

And the run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or crust and sugar over--

Like a sugary sweet?

Maybe it just stays

Like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

Almost to the mountain topYou slip and fall just like a stoneRolling ever faster to this nightmare you have sewnYou had it all right in your graspsbut in a breath your minute passednow alas the end has come,you are all alone.


out of time, so say goodbye,what is yours, now is mine,and I dream broken dreamsI make them come true,I make them for you.
