A big difference to me

When college is right around the corner,
I fear to take out a loan.
Thinking about it makes it a back-burner.
But with this scholarship, I won't have to moan.

Meeting new people and joining clubs is fun.
But when tuition is due,
To work I run,
But with this scholarship, that won't be true.

With a science major, I’ll have reports to write,
And many of books to read.
The cost of books flies high like a kite.
With this scholarship, that kite will lose speed.

I hope this sonnet makes sense to thee,
Because this money would be a big difference to me.

The author's comments:

I wrote this sonnet for a scholarship contest. I was inspired by a previous winner who wrote a series of limericks. This gave me insight to be more creative for scholarship entries. This entry answers the question: How will a $3,000 scholarship for education make a difference in your life?"
