To Build A Better Life

I was absolutely sure, my mind was set

that I wanted to be an architect yet

these mental barriers stand in my way 

stress over school, money,  my hope's slipping away

a bar of soap that i cannot grasp for a minute

at that point I had quit, I forfeit

thinking there is nothing I can do 

till the support of my loved ones helped me get through

and now I'm back on my grind and I'm ready to win

this scholarship with a little help from my pen

I realize now why I want to create for a living

Building homes for people is my way of giving
