Personal/Creative Writing, Topic: My Mother Was Right

723 words - 3 pages

Audience: Teenagers, high school studentsPurpose: To express a situation where my mother was rightNow that I think about it I realize my mother was right. It seems like a week ago that I strode away from the house, her words resounding in my ears. 'Be it on your head!' Yet it was only this morning.I walk along the deserted road toward the tram stop. The distant rattle of a tram reaches my ears and I jog to the corner just as my tram hurtles by, completely ignoring my stop. Letting out a sigh I trudge the rest of the way to the stop.

The tram's wheels creak into motion marking the beginning of an uneventful, cramped journey. A nagging thought is at the back of my mind but I push it away as the tram comes to a jarring halt at the final stop. We flood off the tram and I soon spot my friends in the midday heat and join the masses meandering their way along the street towards the enormous stage set up in front of the beach. We find seats close to the stage and try to find out who's playing. 'Xavier Rudd?' someone suggests. 'No it cant be him, it's a girl' comes the laughed response.A guitar solo followed by an aggressive drum beat blast out over the noisy crowd engulfing all conversations and demanding attention. Our conversation dies as we let the song sink in but my mind is elsewhere. Plots,...
