A Thousand Dollars..


A thousand dollars..

I need a stack, a "G", in today's society

if you want higher knowledge then you must pay a fee

Corrupt visions in this government made my reality

a dream, meer fiction, an impossibility.

I refuse to stay in a trench, forever fearless and willing,

to make a life twenty times better for my family and children,

who said to earn a scholarship that I must be a scholar?

I'm an eighteen year old with ambitions and goals

That starts with a thousand dollars..
