Can't Learn, Why Stay


Repeated kindergarden

No big deal

Older than my peers


Can't drive

Can't work


Blame them all

My parents included

Deffered action

My blessing

Paid twice

The heck

Been a year

At least I'm not a senior yet



A reality?

Slim chance

Must I keep putting up with school everyday 

Knowing it might all be a waste

Yesterday a junior

Today a senior

Tomorrow not even in college

McDonalds here I come

With my high GPA to flip them burgers

With my dedication

With my strive

I blame them all

Including my parents.
