Prose for Thought – A Journey So Long

Prose for Thought – A Journey So Long

Welcome to this week’s Prose for Thought and the start of the school holidays! 

I don’t know about you but I am really exhausted and am finding my creativity waning somewhat at the moment.  Therefore, during the month of August, Prose for Thought is taking a holiday.  

A break is a good thing. I always find that stepping away now and again means that I will come back with a renewed strength and will find myself full of creativity again and will probably write plenty of poems – especially when I find I don’t have to force one! 

So, next week will be the last Prose for Thought until 4th September when it will be back stronger than ever! 

In the meantime, I would like to share another poem that I wrote for NaPoWriMo last year. One that will resonate with any one taking a road trip or driving off on holiday!

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!
