The APC - Army Preparation Course


It's only a course

In the college,

But it's changed my life,

My world.


Can you believe

A course,

Could effect someone,

This bad?


This course has changed me,

More than most of the things

That may ever have happened

In the past.


Yes my past is horrific,

It was cruel,

And downright rotten.


But it happened

And I've realised,

You can be scared of anything,



But life will never move on,

If you let your past,

Become a very twisted



Scars may need to be healed,

Hurt may need to be soother,

But the course has made me realise,

It doesn't have to be done by yourself.


Sometimes it's good to let people in,

cause they can help

Clear the pain and the sorrow,



More miraculously,

They're managing it without ever,

Setting out to break down

The wall


I built around my soul,

They're taking it apart,

Day by day,

Brick by brick


Because they're caring.

Not as substitute parents,

Not by knowing best,

But by just


Being there,

Talking to me,

Listening to me,

Letting me be a part of their lives,


They're unwittingly doing me more good,

Than fifty trips to counselling,

So yes, to some,

The APC may just be a course


But to me,

It's a healer,

A friend.

And the start of a very new and very different

Exciting life!
