Why I Want To Go To College

Location

As I walk around afraid of the unseen

I cherish the light once seen in a dream

                                                            Hoping to find the dreams deferred

                                                            Passing all the voices I’ve heard

Giving myself the task to do

Quivering at what I may come home to

                                                            Believing in a greater hope

                                                            Covered in a world of endless smoke

Seeing myself in you

The reason I want to go to college is you

                                                            Tireless nights we spent wondering why

                                                            Waiting for answers to fall out the sky

Staring into the deep abyss

Wondering if it’s worth the risk

                                                            Pondering all night and day

                                                            Whatever is best is for what I pray

Moving forward with all my might

Remembering you is why I fight

                                                            Seeing myself in you

                                                            The reason I want to go to college is you

Seeing that you are my friend

Someday we will meet again

                                                             Burning the trail for you

                                                             A part of those who made it – I am the few

Relentless work to bring home blessings

Hoping to make up for many stressings

                                                             Get ready because it’s gonna be your turn

                                                             Staying up with almost all to learn

Seeing myself in you

The reason I want to go to college is you

                                                            Seeing myself in you

                                                            I have nothing but myself to lose

Taking a chance for you to win

Adhering the desires of myself: the greatest sin

                                                            Gaining experiences to coach you through

                                                            The reason I want to go to college is you
