Back to School


I'm not a good writer.
I never have been.
I'm not a good writer.
I just won't to win.
Use the money to go to school
And study speech.
Use the money to go to school
And learn how to teach.
Reading, writing, ESL, and linguistics;
That's what I want to teach.
Reading, writing, ESL, and linguistics;
Will help me with my speech.
My reasons for doing this:
The people in my hood.
My reasons for doing this:
They too are misunderstood.
I want to help my people.
Black, Vietnamese, uneducated, and mentally disabled.
I want to help my people.
"Unskilled laborers" is how we're labeled.
The only way to make a change
Is to go to school.
The only way to make a change
Is to not be an "uneducated fool".
