Paramount, necessary, irreplaceable
It is options, choices, empowering
If you are are deemed financially needy, you may just get a grant
If you are average, you may just get a bottomless well of financial debt
If you are under the age of 26, you will not be able to escape the financial chains of your family
It's crushing, painful, monumental
It's taking a full load of classes and working full time
It's sleepless nights, homework all-nighters and stress
It's cramming, studying, fighting your way through
It's college. It's overinflated. It's not overrated.
It's supposed to make my future bright
Then why do I see a bottomless well?
I see what could be a down payment on a house
I see what could be a debt free life
But wait, college is necessary
Financial burdens, monthly bills, school loans...
The bottomless well never seems to end
College. The bottomless well of debt that will launch me forward or drown me.
