How Do I.


Before, having an education was a choice,

Now education has become a necessity,

Without an education,you're just another person in the unemployment line,

I don't want to be just another number,

But how do you want me to have an education when you make it so impossible,

Being declined from a loan left to right; needing a cosigner who isn't willing to share,

People are told to follow their dreams, but how do you follow somethng that seems so unable to be reached,

Many graduating students are in the unmployment line not able to find a job because they're over qualifed,

Society wants us to be successful when we are in dept. before we even start,

So tell me,

How do I.
