I know this is an advert but I just thought it made a nice writing prompt. I am throwing a new theme into the well – JOURNEYS – whether you would like to contribute a poem, some prose, a picture, a video, however you are inspired by the theme. I will start you off with a poem…
If ever you are in some doubt
About your life’s direction
Take a large step back
And make a new connection
To all that makes you who you are
And to all those lives you have touched
It seems you have come so very far
And achieved so much.
If you observed your own life’s journey
From a different point of view
I am sure you would see the difference
You have made to other lives by just simply being you.
Sometimes the road’s a long one
With many obstacles along the way
You have met a fair few crossroads
And had many tolls to pay
I know the ways not always clear
and you often may get lost
but just think of all those you hold most dear
and not of how much it has cost
Then start to plan a new journey
And this time take the scenic route.
Don’t be in such a hurry
Don’t follow the traffic just to suit
Another who tries to point the way
It might not be right for you
Taking the road less travelled
May have a nicer view.
