Press the button and let’s see what happens. It all started out so simply, no pressure, just the four of us messing around.
Well,after we depressed the button all hell let loose. There were lights and alarm bells ringing. It was scary and honestly deafening!
The huge metal door flew open at an alarming speed. What was there for us to do but enter. At first it was dark but we could see lights ahead. We made our way slowly towards the light, then the door slammed shut with a resounding bang behind us . Mercifully there was silence
I remember thinking well there is no return we must just go forward. So we pressed on.
Eventually we reached a portal with two exits . One marked yes and one marked no . We stood there in the middle of nowhere wondering which way to go. There felt like there was no way back with the door locked and there was a force- field in front of us. It had to be one of the exits here either side of us. We looked at the yes door and there was nothing there to help us make a decision so we looked at the no door . Hanging by the the no door there were four pressure suits , boots and helmets. There was a red cupboard with a note on the door saying “Don’t forget your jet packs and oxygen.
Well I ask you, the four of us all reached for the suits. Once suited booted and helmeted we helped each other with the oxygen and the jet packs. We were ready, what a day this was turning out to be!
We all moved to the door and red the instructions : Big red letters said press.
This is part of Linda G Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “Press.” Find a word that starts with press-, ends with -press, or use “press” as a word all by itself. Have fun!
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.
