The liner docked. All the passengers disembarked and queued, patiently standing at the back of line. The man clutched his application form and hoped… He prayed that he would be allowed residency in the new country. Everybody was waiting to been seen. Would everyone be accepted? There was no pushing, no shoving ,no jostling. Just a snake of people hoping and waiting… He was hoping too, until he thought of his family. He was thinking about his decision and if he had done the right thing, hoping he would be reunited with his family.
