Dream Deterred

A dream deferred
Becomes a dream deterred
A book placed on the shelf
Full of fears perviously heard
A constant beacon
Lighting and diffusing
Radiating doubt,
Solely to weaken
A dream deterred
Becomes failures undisclosed
Smothered by the elephant
Of shame it's imposed
Revealing a shattered frame
Where weakness is exposed.
