“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Bridges

Under the bridges of

Anybody’s hopes

It’s interesting to see

The nuances that rope

Their feelings together

In the dim light dreaming

Calling or falling away

And the sunrise bleeding

With the need to

Or the want to

Strip minds of their

Own disturbances

Lose the weight of

Mental absences

And concrete silences

Under the bridges

On the bridges

We walk and we waltz

But below there are

Waves to be calmed

Not ignored

The tempest may break

The bows of the forest

Flooding the atmosphere

With the withering honest

The honesty awashed

In nobody’s bridges

We shout to it

Caress it with voices

Perhaps it will begin

To turn away from us

Ashamed of its anger

And bloodlust

Nevertheless

Under the bridges of

Anybody’s hopes

We may wait in a ship

And look up

Gideon’s Men

We drink at the Jordan

Nobody seems exhausted but I

I take the water in my hands and slurp it

Slurp, slurp

It’s a whole chorus of that sound

My armor is heavy on my chest

The sword hanging in the way of my bended knees

The man says rise and sends the majority away

Apparently

The way I drank had something to do with my staying

It was only that I was tired

That I did not stoop to drink with my face

But this man seemed sure enough of himself

To not even notice I didn’t belong with the wary

Just the weary
