From the college of my dreams.
The one that was supposed to help me reach my goals
or that's what it seemed.
They denied me. Me.
The one who works so hard.
But they accepted him
the one who doesn't have a library card.
It was my SAT score
I've never tested well.
But the kid they did take
dumb enough to fall into a well.
He smokes and never tries hard in school
while I'm the one slaving away.
They offered him a scholarship
while I'm at work and he's at play.
So what would I change?
Lower the importance of test scores
and bring back the interviews.
They would surely see that it would be me
the one they'd want to choose.
I wonder if they can hear my screams
that he hasn't been in clubs
and never been a part of a team.
Meanwhile I'm denied.
Denied from the college of my dreams.
