Shattered Dreams ! Empty Shattered Dreams !

Post  Sue McDonald on Mon Nov 07 2011, 18:02

A youthful face left school, full of hope
said ''I know all I need to know!''
wouldn't take a risk with year 12
only just made year 11, didn't want to
look ''dumb'' if he failed...

A fearful face of realization,
jobs were there, but hard to find
while your dreaming your experienced,
he wanted to shape wood into smooth,
sleek talking pieces of art
Yet he hadn't learnt to nourish,
his own tree of thoughts

A face of triumph, he was given
a chance with a kitchen cabinet firm,
to prove himself, they'll show him the ropes,
chance of long term employment,
maybe even an apprentiship,
excitment, dreams, wiped out with
''sorry son, no more work !''
ten months down the track.

A fearful, hardend face, pained with
unemployment fears, back to the begining,
maybe he could have taken year 12, and passed,
could have gained more experience by going to tafe ?
too proud to go back,not quite strong enough to go further forward
still determined to door knock day after day,
to find the key to unlock his future...........
can you ask any more than that !

No, you can't ask anymore than that. And in this economy, even the very best educated are losing jobs. I'm understanding it's more about personality and PEOPLE SKILLS in our future! Yeah, you need the know how . . . but that's not everything.

Good writing Sue:-)
