The Journey

Extracts from this document...


The Journey I stepped off the aeroplane grasping my belongings with one hand and using my other to steer myself through the commotion of the crowd. Many of the passengers had flocked to the exits of the plane as the plane landed. The crowd resembles a herd of cattle charging at full flow. You could hear the discontent of the small children as they screeched ''I am tired" and other statements which were intimidating to the states of minds of the passengers. This led to a slouch in posture from dejected parents who had survived the long trip only to be faced by a barrage of meaningless statements and malicious taunts.

I began to collect my attire and then started to garb myself. My journey was able to commence as I was fully-dressed. I walked until I reached the summit of the road , I jumped into a taxi and headed towards town. I walked around the market stalls and stations , an elderly woman caught my eye.

She looked tatty and dirty. I swept through the crowd and grabbed her hands , she seemed frail .
