A Dream Deferred...(more like abandoned)
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?
~ Langston Hughes
Yesterday was a bitter-sweet day. A number of my friends and classmates from High school graduated from the Ghana Law school.
I have mentioned on this blog (I think) that growing up, I probably went through crushes on all the professions there were.
Law was my longest-lasting crush...
So yesterday, I congratulated my friends and then sat to re-evaluate my life, a tad wistful.
I never gave law a chance. It held my fancy the longest out of all my professional crushes and yet I never even went out for drinks with it.
You know that cute guy/girl you fancied and never dated but will always smile wistfully whenever you see them with another?
No matter how happy you are with your partner?
I love what I'm studying now and given the chance to do it again, I probably still wont choose law.
I'm excited to finish school and get my hands on impacting the world with all I am learning.
But for me, law will probably always remain, that cute boy/girl you see or remember and wonder,
'What if?' even if you don't want them anymore...
Do you have a 'What if'?
