Road Trip

R aring to go on my first family road trip 

O nward bound to cross the ocean by ship

A tlantic ocean a remarkable vista to behold

D riving with my family traveling the open road

T urmoil  and tension inevitably begins to erupt

R aging tempers flare as our parents get abrupt

I nnocent children witness the beginnings of divorce

P arents should ask for directions when lost and off course.

    Cute and very, very funny and true. It's amazing how difficulties can erupt.

    Nicely done. Its a recurrent motif that guys don't ask for directions.

    Hi Cecilia, Nice acrostic poem...thanks for sharing.. Ken..

    In that case it must be Dad's fault because guys rarely ask for directions. Joking aside being confined can magnify emotions. If this is real I am sorry you lived through it.

    You are correct and was the trip from hell, drove from Newfoundland on way to Rhode Island, we got as far as Boston and got lost, plus van broke down, The bickering was real bad. When garage fixed van, dad turned around and drove back home even though we were closer to Rhode Island, so you can imagine the fighting on the way back, lol

    oh my, that last line says it all!!! My mom fought nearly every night with my stepdad, and yet she stayed with him until the bitter end (when he was with Alzeheimers disease). I really like your acrostic. I did mine on our family vacations too. Not posted yet. I did it on a happy note since we really did have some good times growing up , as I am sure you did too.

    Good one...trapped in a car with fighting parents. Hmmm..not much fun. A little typo in "Atlantic"? Good work. BG
