The main themes of this poetry are delay, sorrow, and dreams. The poem discusses how African Americans are oppressed. The tenor conveys that their objectives are always elusive and meaningless. The speaker acknowledges the weight of these ambitions and claims that they will erupt when it becomes insurmountable. On a deeper level, the poet is alluding to those who have enormous goals but are never given the chance by life to realize them. With African Americans, the situation is the same. They wished to free themselves from racism, but white supremacy prevented them from doing so.
