The young man never did offer his space,
with no change for bus fare,
he was in a dreadful state
for to me it was clear he was on his way to work,
so getting off was not an option,
he saw me as a solution.
I was the last to board the bus behind this young man,
he’d seen me pull out some bills,
so he knew change I had,
when he was refused by the collector,
he asked quite quickly to lend him a sum,
which he would repay, once the time had come.
I believe it was God’s doing that I remained behind,
to offer support to this young man,
who clearly needed it at the time.
