Debt


"Make it or break it,"
so I said I'll make it.
I wrote up a check
and I watched them take it.
I was horrified to find
that they forced me to fake it,
but I shut up and faced it
because I'm in their debt.
"Make it or break it."
I know I said that I'll make it,
but I'm starting to fake it
and it's not going well.
I thought my life would be great
since that's how they paint it,
but I can't seem to pay for it
because I'm still in debt.
"Make it or break it."
Maybe I should just break it.
Who cares if I make it
if I'm swimming in debt?
"Make it or break it."
Yes, I tried to break it,
but my heart started to ache
and now I'm broken and broke.
