4th Street N.W.

by Jade

      education flowing thru my veins
words-phrases-knowledge being celebrated in my brain
i am full.
             positive poison-i know it's a parodox
oh did i tell you i'm now understanding the words
 and the concepts are giving birth to my own interpretations 
   fixing my past miseducation about subjects dealing with Africa
   and other things that i learned
       and thought were true.
Finally realizing reading is a benefit
so im studying and rewarding myself
        and oh i love my HU.
so im in dc learning and growing
being able to engage in discussion
because i am feeding myself the things my professors 
so carefully place on my plate
so i dont sit with questions unanswered

and im feeling brand damn new because im aware
there is more than what first appears
there is knowledge an philosophy inside of me

No scholarship to brag about
 no admission office clout to get me out of issues with my account
i'm validated though.

im convinced my stock is rising 
im focused and im positive
Im finally proud of myself

threes are not good enuf
so that four will have to do.
