Almost there……..

    Almost There

    Walking along the serpentine path,
    Though an endless emerald green valley.
    It feels like our trudge is unending,
    Our spirits really must rally.

    The journey was a labour of love,
    It has been a year since we left the family house.
    But money was needed to keep them alive.
    Now our pockets are jangling, how can we grouse ?

    We hiked hundreds of miles, to secure a job,
    Employment was difficult to find.
    We worked in a mill every spare hour we had,
    Working life was a grind.

    There in the distance, peeing over a hill,
    Is a welcoming view, St Mary’s spire.
    Our destination is five minutes ahead,
    I can’t wait to be sitting at home by the fire.

    Almost There

    It was a crisp spring morning, the birds were singing and trees were howling in the light breeze. Myself and the rest of the sixth regiment of Yorkshire were on our way back from an intense training exercise in Grimsby. We were told we had to walk all the way back to our base on the outskirts of eastern Yorkshire as the transport had unfortunately broken down. We were walking along a dirty and dusty path with two meadows filled with lush green grass when suddenly, Lightning danced across the sky and hail the size of tennis balls started to fall. Then suddenly little black dots came hurdling to earth smashing down either side of us and opened up. Emerald green gas was released as shadowy figures appeared behind the cloud of smoke. We were armed with guns ready to fire, but they fired first with such accuracy that one of our sergeants were killed. A gigantic wave of what appeared to be aliens appeared were charging like Rhino’s towards us and the only thing the group could do was fight. We had outnumbered them but with their outstanding accuracy they were killing three men every ten shots and had the upper hand. I was handling a heavy machine gun hiding behind a bush in the field when suddenly a gigantic asteroid flew in containing reinforcements for the aliens. I found a horse when I was running to safety with a dead body in it, the horse was called carrot my best friends horse and on him sat Tim, my best friend. I had to pull Tim of Carrot so I could make an attempt to escape and raise the alarm. I laid Tim next to a bush and said good bye and Carrot and I charged off faster than a lightning bolt into the town to raise the alarm. At many points carrot and in were shot at and at one point the aliens were on target with a shot, the bullet narrowly missing carrot but hitting me in the arm. I fell thriving in pain, but somehow carrot picked me up with her nose, flung me on her back and carried on going.

    When I reached the village and raised the alarm the aliens had already left killing an estimated two hundred and sixty one soldiers out of a possible three hundred. I never saw any of my friends again as the aliens had taken the bodies of the dead to cover their tracks.

    Almost there…

    The great, inspiring journey is nearly over, the journey that will start the rest of my life. Throughout my time learning and laughter, I have befriended many people, now for most of them a goodbye must be said. Grammar School is just down the path, I must walk away from a lot, but it was worth it. No time in my life can be as exhilarating as this. This is the conclusion for my extraordinary period, for every test has a conclusion.

    Almost There

    Staring at the amber sunset
    driving to join someone who years ago I met
    up ahead grows an ancient Oak tree
    once I get there I can be free
    I’m so excited.

    A green group of silky strands
    as delicate ad human hands
    bunnies probably living there
    maybe even a hare
    I’m so excited.

    Skidding down the long twisty road
    I can see a pond where there lives a toad
    outside are amazing daffodils
    in the distance I can see windmills
    I’m so excited.

    Far away I can see Claire
    I can’t believe she’s standing there
    she’s wearing a pink and white dress
    It makes me feel like a mess
    I’m so excited.

    We really were the very best team
    and now we get to relive that dream
    we sat and chatted all night
    then the next day we few a kite
    we had been reunited.

    Almost There

    Along the arid ground, there are enormous cracks shoved inside the earth. At the far end, slippery moss and lichen lay gazing at the scorching sun. Beside the bone-shaking path, are blazing carpets of bluebells, vivid green stems and splashes of red and orange berries on foliage.
    The path leads to a dense forest with leaves like an umbrella. Fiery, scarlet, autumn and green leaves like fluttering, emerald ribbons. At the top of the woods is a canopy of leaves like a blanket. Paths disappear into the menacing peaks of the hills. Inside the wood are rare, iridescent opals and outside of the forest there are clouds like fluffy cotton balls that drift leisurely across the sapphire, blue sky and below, autumn’s crisp leaves crunch when you walk on them. Fleeting views of the azure sea stretch out as far as the eye can see. The serpentine ground is as dry as a cork underfoot. Squelchy, gooey grass like quicksand makes you sink abruptly. Bleached skeletons of dead trees and trunks like ghostly, stooped figures make your blood turn to ice. Little creatures like feathery shadows show upon the ivy choked twisted trees.
    Finally, there’s the glorious city waiting for you to step into like a bus. You can go and sleep in a cosy hotel. I wonder what tomorrow will be like when I go and explore again.

  7. Walking along the serpentine path, meandering through he lush, emerald green meadows with scarlet flares of poppies and dashes of sapphire blue bluebells, I am exhausted, bedraggled from the mammoth walk. I’m just coming to the top of the hill, I can see my house. It is very distinctive with it’s sagittate tiled roof and planar walls. A cloak of rich orange, ruby red and amber yellow is being hauled across the sky. I must get back quickly before dark. Phew, back in my house, it’s as snug as a bed of roses. I’m sitting on the luxurious sofa with a toasty warm cup of tea and a sapid biscuit.

Sitting on the luxurious sofa with a toasty warm cup of tea and a sapid biscuit.

    ” Are we there yet?” I asked. We where moving house today and going to a house in the country. Me and my annoying little brother, Tom, where arguing on who was going to chose their room first and who was going to get the bigger and better room. Mum turned round and looked at both of us. ” There is only an hour left so complaining and be quiet!” Mum said in an angry and annoyed voice. Dad kept on driving peacefully while listening to music on an MP3 player. ” Allan!” Shouted mum through the music that dad was listening to. ” Huh?” Dad said looking confused. Mum was getting really angry with all of us and her face started going red. ” I think I should choose the room because i’m 10 and you’re 3 so that means that i’m older,” I told Tom. ” Amanda!” Mum said impatiently, ” If you two don’t stop then I will be choosing the rooms and you will have to stay in them!” It felt like an hour was a day until we had finally got there. “Amanda, you will be choosing your room first as you have been the quietist for the longest,” Mum said calmly. ” But thats not fair!” Moaned Tom. At least we where all finally there after 26 hours of riding in a car.

    THE END

    “Almost there…” my mother happily said as we turned the next corner on our seemingly pointless walk to nowhere. We rolled our eyes at each other as we were all sick and tired of her say that. Wee all needed a rest after what seemed like decades upon decades of trudging over bumpy ground. Every time we tried to sit down mother would say, “you have only stepped a short distance, so best food forward!” in her oh so joyful manor. We all groaned until mum said “come on”.

    Finally, in the middle on nowhere was a pile of ants underneath us rushing around. You could see them rushing up your leg. My sister started screaming. She was incandescent with rage. She wriggled and giggled and we were all laughing until suddenly she was a bright red tomato. So we all stopped laughing as something extremely strange happened …

    The Ultimate Path

    Let me tell you about this path. When you start, you can see it has twisting turns, steep hills and trees surrounding it. You will also come across a jungle, which is infested with seven slithering snakes and blustering tigers! (you might want to bring a first aid kit and things you would need on a camping trip) Halfway there, you will find ten tigers tickling to tease each other and nine newts watching them. Don’t stop their tiger fun, otherwise they will bite you to the ground! (and don’t try to hunt them either). Do not go at night, because there would be a hundred tigers waiting to bite you! When your at the end, you have arrived at the city.

    Almost There
    Finally, the brick house and green valleys loomed into view. How nice it was to finally have reached home after the perilous and dangerous journey that I had gone through! The branches of the trees waved their arms in welcome, beckoning me to come nearer. Singing sweetly were the birds that jumped from bush to tree. Green fields as green as the northern lights greeted me with a wave from the wind. Woosh, woosh. That’s the sound the leaves made when the wind made it rustle.

    Home. Finally, I had reached home, wearing torn clothes. It was odd to play in the garden once more like I had done years before the journey had taken place.
