One Liner Wednesday – Makes You Think

I wrote a piece of flash fiction the other day about someone who needed to enjoy the journey of life instead of concentrating on the destination. It is something we are often reminded of daily. When I came across this one liner I realized that perhaps we are all being a bit stupid! Any thoughts are welcome!

For Linda G. Hill’s One Liner Wednesday

The Journey – Flash Fiction

The Journey

The sky was grey and the rain continued falling in bottomless buckets.  

“Oh this is so dreary Mimi.  I can’t stand it anymore”, said Alison moving away from the window.

“I feel like I am stuck in this place forever”

She had been in New York for six months and was still searching for the right job and continued to struggle making new friends.

“Now child, what is your problem?’ asked Alison’s grandmother. “You’ve moped around this apartment all day”

“I am in a job I hate, and I swear, if I am left sitting at another Starbucks waiting to be stood up yet again, I will just scream.  What is the point?” she whined.

Mimi thought carefully.  “Crucial to finding the way is this: there is no beginning or end.  Alison, you just need to remember, it is the journey, not the destination.”

Journey to the Unknown

Journey to the Unknown

Navigation to your mind
A journey to the unknown
Where roads become
twisted veins
confusing and uncertain
Some carrying me onward
in a flowing sea of blood
pumping life to your brain
and others dragging me
down into a coagulated mire
Drowning in uncertainty
Traveling blindly
A wrong turn
