Immigration, a journey not small,
With challenges that may take a toll.
Applications seem straight, but beware,
Unexpected issues may be there.
Spousal sponsorship, children in tow,
Exams can't be done, consent to bestow.
Or just a police clearance, an ease,
But in a foreign land, such troubles may increase.
Poorly researched plans, a common sight,
Spurious advice, leading to fright.
Every household, a story untold,
Of non-credentialed experts, so bold.
Push and pull, reasons untold,
A dream of a better life, to unfold.
No judgement on those, who wish to strive,
For a better life, and to keep alive.
Obsession takes hold, the fear of missing out,
No clear path to PR, what's life about?
Hare-brained schemes, more points to fail,
Conditional events, may never prevail.
Reality strikes, the friction so strong,
Convoluted plans, go wrong.
Look before you leap, take heed this call,
Get advice first, before you fall.
Accurate picture, likelihood of success,
Possibility of failure, should we address.
Years chasing a mirage, a common fate,
Better to be prepared, before it's too late.
