I had to fill in a form yesterday
one to confirm who I was and I was okay
I needed someone to countersign in case I was not believed
I hadn't imagined just how much it would take to get this acheived
There was a list that was a mile long
of people in society who's position was strong
Pillars of the community was all I could ask
to help me along with my tiny little task
Fire Fighters, Police Officers, Solicitors I needed as a chum
well to know me for a couple of years was all that needed to be done
My brain ached by the time I had read this list
who could I possibly twist an arm to enlist?
I would think of someone and then there would be a hitch
I'd look again and that decision I would have to switch
I've never thought of so many people all in one day
all their jobs and the roles they play
But I found my saviour and answer to my plight
no I didn't have to ask a pilot on a Trans Atlantic flight
I found a teacher, yes she was on my list
and now I can go forward with confirmation that I exist
Thank you for reading today.
Join me again tomorrow for
Free From Friday
for now though
A Verse for Thursday....
