    What a Bridge

    What a Bridge

    I simply stand,
    And stare,
    At this endless bridge,
    In this endless air.
    ||||||||
    ||||||||
    Excluded from my group,
    A group that once accepted and cared,
    Now sees me as useless,
    But a crying child that's scared.
    | | || ||
    | | | ||| |||| |
    A past companion spreads a rumor
    To the sky and the sun.
    My reputation, my happiness,
    Fried under the sun.
    ||| | | ||||| | | |
    ||||| | |||| |
    Leaving this place I once called home,
    With no hugs or kisses,
    Or prayers or smiles,
    Or best wishes.
    || | || |||| | || | ||
    ||| | | |
    ||||||||||
    ||||||||||
    . . .


    And this is the bridge to cross,
    That I must walk across.
    I guess, if anything,
    Don't look down.





    "What a Bridge."

    What a Bridge.

    A glimpse of the bridge of life we all must pass through. And, like this old and worn-out bridge, boards are missing. In fact, this bridge is dangerous. At any time, it may seem uncrossable. What if you suddenly have 4 tests one day? What if your friends reject you? What if a rumour spreads and now you're in deep trouble?

    In essence, those troubles and those questions are the wind and the doubt in this bridge.
    This bridge is the strongest there is,
    And the most honest.
    We will all cross it and reach our final destination,
    But the question is simply:
    How many times will you look down? And scare yourself at the sights?


    :) Thank you for reading.
    This is, surprisingly, a happier poem since I just noticed it has a nicer meaning at the end.

    *P.S. - The ||||| in the poem are to represent a bridge and the | | | ||| are to represent the uncertainty in the bridge and the boards that are missing. Imagine this poem as a vertical bridge.

    Those lines are a bridge? For whatever reason, the first thing I thought of when seeing the lines was barcodes.
    The second thing was those black lines that appear when astronomers analyze the light spectrum of a star to determine its element composition. (Astronomy is cool.)
