The Cycle

Location

Excited!

Oppourtunity is knocking!

It's constantly pounding.

It's constantly talking.

Exhausted.

In the World of Tomorrow.

You can reach your dreams!

Here's some money to borrow!

Indebted.

Like a beggar I plead.

In MLA format,

For strangers to read.

Disheartened.

I pursue education.

My legs are weighed down,

By fruitless applications.

Shame.

I feel like a joke.

The oppourtunity surrounds me,

But I've only grasped smoke.

Clarity.

Sadness is a mistake

I'll miss every chance,

That I never take.

Hope.

I'll continue to try.

I will not be knocked down.

My future is nigh.
