what would you change scholarship slam


Have you ever heard of a fallacy?
Well that is what has happened to me
A generalization gone wrong
Making the application process rather long
They said it would be a breeze scholarships will come with ease
But they forgot to include the financially incapable , the cost of college will make life unstable
Having a scholarship will make my dream come true for sure
Making the obstacles less obscure
If i could change one thing itd have to be
Looking at other qualifications to earn a college degree
A lot of us are on our own
Paying for college all alone
If there was a way to decrease the cost
Id do it in a heartbeat so we're not as lost
It isn't fair that this is our "in"
Money shouldn't determine education
Other aspects should fall into perspective
Until then however, we'll keep our fingers crossed and stay positive.
