This Life



As I lay here and think,
My life is on pause
Just Floating, 
Hoping not to sink.
Waiting for the next clause,
I cannot afford college to get me through
Working three jobs with bills to pay,
I know there is a good cause.
Without it in writing,
I cannot get the proof
Sitting on a half done bachelors,
'til success I will keep fighting 
To keep me at ease
Turning this dream to reality
I will need a little extra help
This scholarship, please.
My life is art and design
Holding so tightly 
I cannot let go
This life
I desperately want to call mine.
