“It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined.” -John Green, Paper Towns


I used to be just a bridge.
A bridge that people walked on;
Stomped all over, shook repeatedly.
Just so they could get what they wanted:
To get to the other side.
I turned into an ugly old thing.
Wood rotted, ropes broken.
But then along you came.
You closed the bridge to others.
You repaired my ropes, replaced my wood.
But now, I can't help but wonder...
Are you going to walk over me too?

For some reason, your work wasn't showing up on the screen.  Unless it hasn't been published yet?  Haha I don't know.
