Ready To Take Flight!

Seated in comfort
Ready to take flight
Excited for the journey
With all of your might

A goal was set
A long time ago
Hard work has paid off
There is not long to go

The journey of a lifetime
Is about to begin
It was always coming
We knew you would win

So buckle up for the ride
And lead from the front
Success is waiting
For those who take the punt

Your dedication and service
Will hold you in good form
As we hear of your victories
Which will become the norm

Written by David Johnson

[This poem was inspired by Russell Curto, a fellow Campbelltown
Toastmaster member who recently found out he had achieved his dream of getting
into the R.A.A.F. (Royal Australian Air Force) as a pilot]!
