Gesher (The Bridge)

(from Pandemic Corona)

Standing at the edge of a story,
Fifty feet off the ground;
I survey the field in front of me,
Possibilities all around.

The narrow bridge I stand on
Will lead me on my way;
Unfolding with each footstep
I won’t be led astray

At times the bridge might wobble,
My hands might grip the rails;
As long as I kept moving,
The bridge will never fail.

Standing at the edge of the story,
Looking out at the frontier;
A million paths in front of me,
Behind me only fear.​​
