NaPoWriMo Day 5- A Journey So Long

NaPoWriMo Day 5 is a poem all about the dreaded car journey to a holiday destination! I remember the feeling well 😉 – inspired by a roadtrip that we took on Wednesday this week!

A Journey So Long

People driving here and there

Where are they going? Do they care?

A journey to see how far it is

Kids make a noise, Dad’s in a tiz

Just what to do on a journey so long

Keep your temper, just stay strong

‘Are we there yet?’ young voices ask

Driving can be a thankless task

Let’s play a game, maybe I-Spy

The baby is hungry and starts to cry

Let’s all stop and have a break

How much longer is this going to take?

Not much more, don’t your fear

Turn the corner, ah we’re here!

    Remember these endless roadtrips with my daughters.
    As they get older they have learnt to plug in IPods on long journeys and I always find I’m taking to myself!
