Applying For Scholarships At Work

Late at night

sipping coffee

bleary -eyed.

 

Can't take anymore

of these endless searches.

My computer screen

it dances

it blurs

as I blink.

 

My life.

All it comes down to

is this:

 

Class, work, class.

Gym

Squeeze in a nap.

 

Apply, Apply, Apply

Need the scholarships, 

all the grants.

Any and all assistance

that I can get.

 

So that I never

never again 

Have to work

every night

21 days in a row

and go to class 

and take my exams

and work

work

work.

 

Help me, 

I'm drowning.

This poem is about: 
Me
