-maybe it SAGS like a HEAVY LOAD. Or does it EXPLODE? These 4 Literary devices point out the key parts of the poem. They explain how some dreams that are pushed aside are forgotten (dry up like a raisin in the sun). How pushign your dreams away can hurt you or your future (fester like a sore- and then run?) Do you keep your dream and never forget it. (crust and sugar over like a syrupy sweet.) Or does the Dream being pushed aside stay on your mind. (maybe it sags like a heavy load.) Or does the dream being pushed aside make you so angry you decide to do something about it. Langston Hughes
