Tuition Sickness

Its like my mind fell off a plane into needle tips 

cause ima freshman with no scholarships 

sure i got grants but man i need more grip 

cause cost is heavy and your boy gots no chips

 

Fresh outta highschool 

now its time to chase dreams

never thought cash would really be a big thing 

 now im eighteen dealing with private fees

tryna dogde interest

so subsidized is the best thing

 

Who woulda knew to pursue a dream would have a price tag

man i swear lifes just a big money bag

full of currensys, bad dreams, and discoveries 

but there are still a few awesome things

like art, film, and poetry

i feel the three have guided me

since i pursue an art degree 

with a cost in the grands

so you know i aint playin' man

 

So for now i cant worry about the cheese

i just gotta start designin' new vanitys

that the market needs 

to keep this artist eating and breathing

 

Its like my mind fell off a plane into needle tips

cause ima freshman with no scholarships

sure i got grants but man i need more grip

cause cost is heavy and your boy got no chips

 

now i refuse to call this blues

because this winner cant lose

its like i design new clues 

that keep my goals on cue

and my life past curfew

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
