Yes! Success!

In England

I had a good job

I was somebody

It meant a lot

I met someone

Things advanced

She fell pregnant

Wanted to return to France

We moved to France

Left my job

To have a baby

Gave up the lot

I regret not

The choice I made

To be a dad

Even if I was afraid

To be isolated

Conversation nul

Mute even

Life so dull

To start working

In fast food

Never thought possible

But I pushed through

Emasculated

Never felt as trapped

Not able to move

Started to look back

No, no, no

Same email always

With our regrets

Their negative way

I got a 4th interview

A large company

I sold myself

Take a chance on me

The next day at work

I see their lorry

Never noticed before

Will it be fate?

Will I be sorry?

I told myself

If it’s meant to be it will

Angie wished me Irish luck

And told me to chill

Finally some luck

Had shone on me

I’ve got the job

I’m so happy

8 months of applying

Depressing as it’s been

400 applications

Felt like a has been

I told my work

The news today

They were happy for me

In their own way

Goodbye to the fast food

The people that gave me my chance

Now to the new chapter

March the 12th I will dance!

Job Interview

Nervous,

It could all change

Life could become

Ever so strange

.

Can’t sleep

Can’t eat

What’s it doing to me?

I’m so stressed out

Is it to be?

.

That stress before

The work I put in

All that paperwork

Just to put in the bin

.

Research

Prepare 

Do everything I can

Tell myself stay calm

Stick to the plan

.

It’s just a job

I know 

It doesn’t change things

That uncertainty before

All the stress it brings

.

I won’t tell anyone

Not even my mum

Hearing no

Never been fun

.

Self confidence gone

Success ratio down

All these rejects

Make me frown

.

Approach it calm

All you can do

Take a deep breath

Have faith in you

.

Do I deserve this?

Is it finally a yes

Am I gonna get it?

After this

I’m gonna be a mess

.

Fate is gonna come knocking

One day

You will see

When you hear that yes

Your gonna be happy

Waiting

Waiting is a horrible thing

What is this news gonna bring?

Is it positive? is it a yes?

Did I do what was asked of the test?

Is it negative? is it a no?

Do I drown myself into my sorrow?

This is killing me, hours and days

Walking around in my own haze

Checking my phone for a buzz or a ring

“When you going to ring you poxy thing!”

I can’t stand it, it’s getting too much

How can one response cause such a fuss

The phone rings, lights up at last

I was quick, super quick, lightning fast

I wait anxiously, saying hello

Is it good news, or just another blow?

Hello, I have spoken to them, this is the news

Thank you, I hold my breath, win or lose?

Thinking about it, waiting

It could all change

For me to better my life
