Many things have conquered me

Who I am is not just what you see

I'm complex as can be

I've been knocked down by the stress of money

Trying to get through school ain't so funny

Being on my own is just a whole new joke

This was the first time I ever needed to buy my own soap 

Now I have to pay the bills 

When I just want to live for thrill 

Now I have to supply the food

But I can't even keep a dude

Theres a lot of things I wish I knew,

Before I went to school

You need many tools 

Heck, I even needed a stepstool 

But this expierence is shaping me 

To be the best that I can be
