Directions

Step 1

you wear my college tuition

dollar bills, forget my future

begging Sally Mae for some change

I wouldn’t have to do this

I had the money put aside

selfish, bearer of life

Step 2

you don’t dare coddle me

let alone give love willingly

I stand alone cause you made me

and waste the money for college

buying that designer shit

“I got to have it!”

Step 3

Every latest edition, in

every color, with matching shoes

purse, glasses

than think of me
