Building a Bridge

12 May

I’m building a bridge

and I’m going to need a lot of help

if I’m going to span this gorge of hopelessness

I’m forging a bond

I’m forming a committee

I’m declaring myself a candidate

for some unknown destiny

and I’m going to need a lot of help

all this work is more than one man can handle

I need a woman by my side

to remind why it is all worthwhile

I’m building a bridge

out where the sun and wind batter my skin

out where I am never alone, because

I’m building this bridge with my friends
