Eva chose JOURNEY as our Music Theme for this week. This is the Journey of my life so far.
Keane On The Road
My Journey started at birth dragged kicking and screaming from the womb into the harsh light of day. The start of the long road.
The Journey Part 1
Set upon this path, a route I do not know
Destination withheld from the very start.
Blindly footstep after footstep, steady slow.
Arms outstretched searching with my heart
Forced out into the light from the warmth of within
I was not ready for this world so cold and bright
Covered in blood and marked with original sin
I stumbled on towards the eternal light.
Dark Road Annie Lennox
The dark road of my school years.
The Journey Part 2
And so here at 7yrs the child is formed still so far to go and on a dark road.
I love to colour I love to dance I love to sing
Drawing cutting pasting telling stories to my Ted.
I am not pretty I am not clever I am not slim
I fly across the skies with imaginary friends and go exhausted to my bed!
Coming up 14yrs school is hard and husband is met
But being the butt of everyone’s spite is a hard hat to ware !
The teachers do not like me, the girls see me as an easy target
I spend my time pretending I don’t care
Imogen Heap Who’s Getting scared now.
Early Married years and babies, lost and kept.
The Journey Part 3
Twenty one and my journey moves on
Been Married now 4yrs
So far we have a son
We have lost three babies and this has brought us tears.
Soon another boy arrives making two
I grieve for those I lost
I treasure my boys and my husband too
I am lost that is the high cost.
Peter Frampton The Long and Winding road
My middle years.
The Journey Part 3
I am in my thirties now and yet another boy
I am on my own a lot as the husband’s job takes him away
The boys grow they race through teenage years , arguments and joy.
They are leaving school , university and home they leave me no matter what I say.
Forties Fifties flying by I am changing time for me
Get a new job I like, with prospects, husband leaves and then later returns.
The boys become men they get jobs and travel here and there and across the sea.
Then one finds a wife we all give him away , tears of joy in our eyes burn.
Marmalade Reflections of my life!
My life as it is.
The Journey Part 4
Now into my sixth decade
With all that has come and gone
The right choices and the wrong ones made
I am older maybe wiser now like lyrics of a song.
A baby I have been , a child and a young girl
I have lived and loved been married and become a mum
I have seen so many things to make your minds twirl
I find much comfort now as a grandma I have become.
My Journey through life to be continued.

It explains Imogens song about bullying and I was so bullied at school by teachers and my peers! xxxx
I was the one who always stood up for the one being bullied. I lost popularity, but gained lots of life long friends from it. I would have stood up for you! 😉

A time comes when we realized the memories of who we were and the years we have lived, can fit into a thimble. ❤ ❤
Awesome compilation, Willow.
Thank you Tess. Wise words from you about the thimble. Xcc
In the great scheme of things, our lives pass so quickly. ❤
Yes they used to say 6 score years and ten , hopefully a little longer these days 😉 xxx
A wonderful post, Willow. Life’s journey certainly has its ups and downs. So glad to see the newbie featuring!
Thank you Jean I was not sure whether or not to go down that route but the journey of life suggested itself to me and I tried to keep it short and to the point so as not to bore. As to the Newbie he is the best part of now a reward the hope for the future. xxx
Anything but boring!
