Today is the day when the UK leaves
the European Union, begins to achieve
independence and new times ahead.
The past is now past, let’s leave it behind,
let’s move forward, begin to find
a middle ground, a place to begin
to work together, mend the divide,
stop the bickering, begin to abide
by the majority decision that was cried
out loud, in the vote, the people voted
we want to leave, clear not coated.
The day is here, at last arrived,
so much waiting, perhaps contrived?
No more waiting, no more stall,
Let’s move on, let’s play ball.

I could not let such an important day in our history go by without writing something, anything. It is just a few lines of verse to mark the occasion in a truly small way. It matters not whether you or I in the UK voted leave or remain. The People voted in the referendum and more recently in the General Election. As a Democracy it has always been important to abide by the vote of the majority. It should not have taken as long as it did to honour the decision of the majority but the people would be heard. It’s what makes us a Democracy. For those of you outside the UK wish us well on our journey! It may not be an easy one but we will do the best we can always!
