The Dream

Location

 

 

I wake up to these four walls each and everyday

 

My cold room, this broken house, all take it's toll on me

 

No food to eat, dirty clothes to wear, no money in the bank

 

I can't believe my mother doesn't get paid for two more weeks

 

Four adults, one single parent, and not enough income

 

Have inspired me to go to college and better my education

 

 

 

 

 

Animals are my passion, I strive to help them out

 

Sometimes I used to catch frogs and keep them in my house

 

 Innocent and mysterious, they keep me entertained

 

Which is why I'll dedicate my life to making sure they'll be okay

 

My career choice is Veterinary Technician, and I have to choose a school

 

I checked out Blue Ridge Community College, it seems pretty cool

 

I'll be living like an adult now, on my own, in an apartment

 

But first I need to get a car and save up money for my expenses

 

$20,000 is a lot to save, when you work one part-time job

 

But I refuse to let that bring me down, I'm focused and will not give up

 

Getting out of this little town means so much to me

 

So I can become my own person, the one God intended for me

 

With faith, support, and hard work, this dream can become reality

 

The long, hard ride I'm about to face will make a woman out of me

 

Everyday is a day closer to reaching my destination

 

So buckle in and let's go, the road is open,  no more waiting

 

When that day comes when I've finished school and left this little town

 

I'll look back with a smile and say, "I never thought I'd be where I am now"
