Because the American Dream is hardly a dream
Working two jobs, a nightmare it seems
Bills upon bills, taxes upon taxes,
Living middle class, far from the wealthy status.
Hard work, more labor, stress, aches and pains
So much of life’s pressures, with little to gain
Speaking from experience, but not that of my own
The ones of my parents, hardship they condone.
An uphill struggle, the top beyond reach
Happy images of the wealthy, blurred road they don’t teach
It’s my turn now, young adult on my own
My dream to live lavish, a top that fancy throne.
Money for education, the loans that I’ll owe
Money for bills and taxes, this cycle, I know
Tick tock tick tock, the clocks ticking away
No time to waste, No time for dreaming, always bills to pay.
