What’s on the other side?

Strange sounds are emanating

from the thick blanket of trees.

You can only see darkness and

the slight rustling of leaves.

You know you want to cross the bridge.

So you begin the shaky walk across.

The bridge sways with each footstep.

Should you continue?

You hesitate but you move forward

step by halting step.

You reach the other side.

There’s a loud crashing sound behind you.

You quickly turn to see the bridge

falling into the water below.

Now you are on the other side looking back.

You know you want to go back.

But it’s too late.

Human nature might have dictated your wants

but the bridge has dictated your reality.
