What Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda Been.

You could have been somebody,
and done something.
You have so much potential,
but see a thing.
Why give up,
instead of staying strong?
If you just believe in yourself you'll go far and long.
Why is that so hard to understand?
There is so much time, 
and so much to do.
But dropping out,
that thought should be little to few.
Sure things can get rough,
And a few have made it through.
But chances are,
you'll have a much better chance staying in school.
Why are you thinking of this choice in the first place?
Is it too hard,
or you're too lazy?
Do you just want a job, 
to get out of your home town,
Or are you letting bad habits define you?
You are so much bigger than that.
Life is hard,
and whether you like it or not,
it will always be work.
You'll be better off finding a job having graduated,
so don't shirk.
No need to be materialistic,
but merely agree,
life would be better with AT LEAST a high school degree.
