No choice but to live on credit

I am an all American girl

Giving up more than I have

Hoping for a future of greater opportunity

Knowing meritocracy isn’t real

But hoping I can be the exception

Working my fingers to the bone

Working three jobs

I got the degree they said would set me free

But I’m still living on credit

Watching my inbox fill with rejection letters

Wondering when I can live in the green
