A - Z APRIL 2013 - T

(Suzy’s boyfriend)

He saved his work and looked at his mobile phone
Smiled to himself as he heard Suzy’s ring tone
He was only half way through this essay
It wasn’t easy to find the words he needed to convey
The messages that whirled around in his brain
Sometimes the thoughts came so fast like an express train
This was only his first year at college he had to get it right
He’d worked so long and so hard he had to keep up the fight
Darren was going to ask his manager for an application form
It would be great to earn some money and help pay his way
His parents didn’t begrudge him but it was tough some days
They were so proud of him getting to college
They would scrimp and scrape and somehow manage
Sometimes it was rather a responsibility being the only son
The pressure was on but he really was a lucky person.

  2. Seems like Toby has a lot in his life that he would like to get out. :)
