Scholarships are Awesome

Awesome
is getting into grad school
even if
you don't know how 
you'll pay for it.

Awesome, 
is waking up every
single
morning
to do what you love

Awesome
is waking up every
single morning
at a job you hate
because you need it
to get where you belong

Awesome
is working towards
who you've always wanted
and known
you should be.

Awesome 
is going to sleep
with a roof over your head
and endless educational 
opportunites
at your fingertips

Awesome
is a warm cat
snuggled up against my feet
as I listen to the purr
and think about
what to do next.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
