Dream Deferred

Trinity auditioned for her school's talent show. After practicing Langston Hughe's poem "Dream Deferred" repeatedly, her music teacher informed her that she had been chosen to participate in the talent show. She was so excited about the good news!! Well Friday evening was the big night. I applaud all of the students for their dedication and courage to perform in front of everyone and I am especially proud of Trinity. She makes us proud! Although she was a little nervous, she performed very well. She did a lot better than me. I don't do well with public speaking or big crowds. I literally start sweating and then the panic attack follows:( (Well not the panic attack part, but it feels like it) Trinity has done exceptionally well throughout her kindergarten year. Her teacher nominated her as SCA representative for her class, she stayed on green the entire year (green means good, yellow means the teacher had to give you a warning about something, and red means you did something unacceptable), her grades were outstanding, she's an excellent reader, and she has thoroughly enjoyed her first year of school. My daily prayers are that she continue this behavior well into her adulthood:) Wishful thinking huh? Thank you family for coming out and supporting meant alot to her.

Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes

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?
