It All Depends On So Little

At the time
It seems so unimportant.
Only grades
Only a test
Only a quiz.
Only it all adds up
To something called a GPA.
It’s…only letters
Only determines your future,
Only what college you get into,
Only it seems so unimportant,
At the time.

Four years
The first one doesn’t really matter.
Four years
Determines who you are…
Four years
Better get on track,
Four years
Your future…
Four years
So little time…
Four years
But so much depends on it
Four years
How are you supposed to know?
Four years
Are you where you want to be?
