By Toni Hunter
The course dates were open; the application went in.
The decision was made; now the change can begin.
We arrived at Qantas; all scared and alone.
And were welcomed by ladies; who made it feel home.
Calm fearless flyers; is what we want to be.
Will we all get there? Just wait and see.
We spend the weekend; our heads in a spin.
Listening, watching, and taking it in.
Information supplied; things we didn’t know.
Tools that were given; for confidence to grow.
Rod was there to assist, and help guide us through.
To calm and relax; as the veiled panic grew.
A life without fear; a life without dread.
A life without demons; sitting inside our head.
The course couldn’t exist; it couldn’t be done.
If it weren’t for the staff; of which pay there is none.
They volunteer their time; together a team,
To give us a chance, of something we dream.
The weekend is over; the flight is now booked,
Maybe it’s not as scary; as it first looked.
For now we are fearless, and ready to fly,
With confidence growing; we take to the sky.
The course is now over, it’s time for goodbyes.
We say our farewells; with tears in our eyes.
The journey has just started; the places are new,
The choices are endless; it’s just up to you.
