BETTER

Location

I hated school,

now I realize that I am a fool.

All I went there for was to see my friends,

I had to know the latest trends.

I didn't want to wake up on time,

but now, i don't possess so much as a dime.

I decided to drop out,

I know that I should have taken a different route.

I wish that I had stayed in school;

when I dropped out, I thought I looked cool.

But now, my friends are reaching success;

do you think that I am? No? Lucky guess.
