Bridging the Gap

By Angel Shadow

The bridge stands before me
So strong and so grounded
I've manifested it's existance
With words I have sounded.

It calls me to cross
My destination unclear
The only thing holding me back
Is my self-denied fear.

I called on the bridge
To transport me home
To move me across
I am never alone.

The steps are my own
And I set the pace
Through the hustle and bustle
It's a one person race.

The first step's the hardest
Moving forward so slow
But the next step seems easy
As I go with the flow.

I stand in the middle
This bridge does not sway
Holds me ever so steady
As I go on my way.

I've learned a few things
On this bridge I call mine
Each step contains knowledge
And wisdom so fine.

I take it all with me
The load bitter-sweet
But well worth the hike
And the experiences I meet.

I'm just about there
I see others as well
All crossing their bridge
Their own story to tell.

They cross in great numbers
On these bridges so strong
Some tired and weary
From a journey so long.

Upon looking closer
At this bridge I selected
I see it's not separate
For all are connected.

Some frozen in fear
On their bridge all alone
Turbulent waters below
Have them cast in hard stone.

But a connection is there
And another can see
The crossroads of bridges
All connecting to Thee.

Another moves to the bridge
Where the stone stands in place
Bending down on one knee
Gently touching their face.

The stone breaks apart
And tears start to fall
"I was starting to think
None would answer the call."

"Thank you for stopping
On this journey of yours
You could have kept going
Choosing numerous doors."

But the stranger replied
"My journey is We
A path of great solitude
But never of Me."

I continue to watch
Slow assistance take place
While others run quickly
Thinking they're winning the race.

For those that cross slowly
Take time to see
All paths are connected
A part of the We.

Ahead on the journey
On a road not so long
Stands a bridge built for unity
One bridge standing strong.

Crossing this bridge
Doesn't require a map
It's all about We
And Bridging The Gap.

My childhood was full of abuse and neglect, which lead me to my volunteer abuse work. It also lead to anxiety and panic attacks, which I suffered from for years, so I'm dedicated to helping others in that area as well. I have now found my own personal freedom, based on my own personal truth and nothing could be more liberating.
