Langston Understands


i just heard back from Georgetown about my financial aid: $0

They regretfully tell me to go to a private lender...they know what most people know, the housing market crash/lendee crash/ high foreclosure rate means THERE ARE NO MORE LOANS

i've never felt so numb, sober.

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?

P7 backwards to see the sky

Follow up: I'm not giving up this easily, I'm an Americorp Veteran for Christ Sake! Watch me do me!
