Volunteer stories: Paul (Jul 16)


I’m free to come and go
And make my plans
Escape the heat
And heat my home
I have a home
Where I grow my own

I lock my door
And watch TV
I have machines
That wash my things
Choose what I eat
And those nice creams
I book holidays
And have days out
Walk in the woods
And cross the seas
I can find a job
And shoes that fit
Shop when I want
And flick a switch

I will hug my wife
And hold my kids
I will thank my luck
And think of them
