Bridges break for all reasons and seasons.
Maybe, the supports are weaker,
Maybe, the load was just too oppressive.
Maybe, deliberately sabotaged
It doesn’t matter why the bridge broke.
Some bridges are unrepairable,
Too much fear they will not hold.
Look at the bridge again
Maybe appears distant and silent, but it’s still there
Waiting for you, not to judge it for purpose.
Bridges can be rebuilt stronger, differently
That bridge has carried peoples dreams and hopes.
Standing many more years than you
Enjoy the challenge or stand back.
Just enjoy it’s presence.
