Financial Suicide


Collapsing under the pressure of knowledge,
Sleeping starts to sound way better than college.
As I strive to have my educational needs met,
the more frustrated I seem to get.
Can't get a job without a degree,
So why don't they educate for free?
No one can take your education away,
So why am I forced to overpay?
Taking out loans, to pay for other loans, 
Earns you a one way ticket to the locker of Davy Jones.
Having my mind set on success,
I am financially under too much stress. 
Because of my age and not having credit,
I would rather not go to college and just say “forget it.”
Yet, not going to college is a decision I would regret,
I guess we're all just predestined to drown in debt.
