Im the Man


Im the man around here. I wake up feeling on top.

Im just trying to graduate, but i need some college guap.

Everything is looking good, im even picking up my grades.

But theres one thing I need, a lot of financial aid. 

I got ups and I got downs, but I always make it through.

When they counting on me, I always know what to do. 

I never got my head down because im very optimistic,

I been through a whole lot, but I cant name someone who didn't. 

I want to go to college so I can learn more tools for life,

But im having second thoughts cuz the price aint looking right.

So i wrote this poem to get a scholarship to help me out,

Im just a boy from the hood but im striving to get out.
