How can I be a bridge
to help you cross what
you need to cross?
This is finally all I aspire to.
To reach across the divide
because I have been so divided.
To pick up what is broken
because I have done the breaking.
To ask for guidance because I
too have been so stubborn.
A Question to Walk With: How can you be a bridge to someone in need? What would that look like? And how might you grow for giving in such a lasting way?
This excerpt is from my book of poems in progress, The Tone in the Center of the Bell.
