Validate me, endorse me, I’m a written check
Made out for the amount you want, I’m
in transition, cash me in, withdraw my balance,
I belong to you.

Crumpled and forgotten, I’m the original
of the copy you lost in the back of your mind
How can you ignore me,
I’m something that pays!
Representing so much possibility,
I’m just here
waiting unnoticed in your billfold for days.

Thanks very much! The thing about getting published is that...I never expected it, and I never expected it to be this poem.
Strange, how things work out.
Good luck!

I love your use of metaphor, it's really well done. Congrats on getting published! I hope I do someday, but I've got quite a few years.
