a bridge

there are things
to reconcile
to redeem
to reclaim
and to lose…

the past is racing
to overcome
its own memory
surging recollection
daring today

reach back, reach back

but there are things
to risk
and reasons not to
to stay here today

is the bridge to burn
or to cross

the life we spend is on the span

are we crossing

or going back
