Why I need this scholarship


I need this scholarship for many more reasons that one,

See, my dream is to attend Stanford and study in the sun,

However, I can't afford to pay my way, cuz all I got in my walltet is several ones,

I wish I had the money and financial strength to allow me to fulfill my dreams,

I know you may think this is cliche, but there is more to me than it seems,

I'm a caring kid, I spend most of my time studying, playing sports, or volunteering,

From homeless shelters, to cross-country, to IB, to orienteering,

So, I hope my poem makes you laugh, think about me, or maybe even smile,

As long as it did, I have achieved my goal, even if it is just for a little while
