Hidden Gem

I'm stuck in a place that is good for me,

It sucks, its hell ,it's weak to me.

Academics are great, and so is the school,

But the people all here act like a fool.

I go to a school that's a hidden gem

Where classes are hands on,

and cadets can assend.

To graduate freely with laughter and hope

always looking ahead the goal in their scope.

To attain a licence from coast guard to be

A ship master , captain, engineering degree,

As I end this line and poem for now

I must speed walk to class the next one is calc.

For I am here on a loan  my pockets are empty

khaki kingdom life is no excuse for ranting

so I sit here a poet or pretending to be

Because Scholarship money is the thing that i need.





A little about myself, I go to 1 of only 6 Maritme Academies in the United States, not counting Kings Point which is run federally. I am majoring in Marine Engineering Technology. I was a transfer student from a Community College. Based on the specialty and nature of the school not much of my credits transfered over, hence starting from the bottem and being here for the next four years. I really hope I get this scholarship, it would help my parents and myself out a lot. Thanks for reading my poem!
