The Journey : Musical Theme

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

happy day

happy day

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.

Brandi Carlile  Story Of My Life.

Musical Theme: Grandmother Fire

Run from the fiery dance

by willowdot21

OMG

The red, the yellow, God they frighten me,

the heat, the fear is all that I can see.
Run, run, run for your live’s
get your husbands, children, grab your wives.
Pound, pound, stomp, stomp the sound of people running for their lives!
Go, go this is your only chance
to escape the fiery dance.
No time for saving your possessions,
no time to find the cat
he will be gone to safety you can be sure of that.
Go, go don’t look back ,
duck, duck hear those windows crack.
How did this happen what did we do….
nothing , nothing , is that really true.

Cities Burning

by willowdot21

London’s Burning

Stomp stomp there’s panic on the streets.

They are tearing through the alleys and taunting the police.

They are burning shops and peoples homes.

No matter how hard people have worked and made their businesses by working fingers to the bone.

Families frightened out of their minds,  running  across the roof tops escaping

flames, shocked and lost having left all they own behind.

Smash Smash they are breaking lots of glass

stealing trainers, clothes and handbags this is not the poor under class.

This is not political they have no high ideals.

They are not the poor underdogs who can’t afford their meals.

If you can carry a Blackberry phone and a fashionable track suit and designer trainers you own,

your on another track., you are in another zone.

Stamp stamp the sound of running feet they are all carrying 75 inch screens and DVD recorders by the score.

“Take what you can when you can” is the gang call of the suedo poor.

Flames, flames police cars have been torched

whole shops and all their contents have all been thoroughly scorched!

People without their livelihoods, people without their homes

all because these feral louts threw fire bombs and stones.

They rant and rave and scream and bleat that they are fighting for a cause ,

they have no hope they say, no jobs and no one for them cares.

There are the jobs and there are the chances we all get just the same

it just some of us make our own  way and don’t take benefits just for gain.

A good man lost his youngest son whilst on a vigilantes line,

he only wanted to call a holt  to the rioters forward drive.

Just because he stood for right ,

these ferals having fun, drove through his line killing three,

his youngest son was one.

If ever we needed a hero, a strong leader to come along,

we need them now ! We need the police to stand up and use measures hard and strong,

for what these evil robbing thieves are doing, is all wrong.

Feral Looters
