The Answer To My Problem

Mon, 02/24/2014 - 20:35 -- 14vmann


Usually I write to a rhythm or a beat

any time I need to speak on a problem that I meet.

But one thing in particular, I think is apt to change,

is how colleges will do anything to catch some change.

Now it seems the subject I'm writing on is quite ironic,

but if I see another peer drown in debt, I might vomit.

These days the fact of having college loans is simply just accepted

but honestly I think the education system needs correction.

While I've eaten ramen noodles for the last 8 days,

I'm stressing out over if I can get bills paid and make A's

Seems like most of us students, are under so much stress.

Why don't colleges try to help set us up for more success?

Instead of emptying our pockets, and bogging us down with debt.

So, naturally I'm seeking some sort of way to make it,

filling out scholarships until late, so I can make the payments.

If only somehow universities could put tuition on clearance,

the current young american condition would certainly be of higher spirits.

So one thing I would change, If I had the chance

is the price of education, so that everyone can have a chance

to pursue a future without feeling like we're drowning,

struggling to find ways, to pay for food, school, and housing.

You could however, help one of those students with a dream,

If only you'd be so kind enough, so give this scholarship to me.
