The Bridge 2

Sitting on The Bridge; chin resting on knees. On the left, the light- so far away- dimming. On the right, the bonfire- near, yet still so far- glowing.??

Standing up now. One step forward. Another step forward. Confidence moves forward. Instinct whispers, ‘don’t move forward’. One step right. One step forward. Fear moves forward. One step forward. Another step forward.??

The bonfire glows with warmth- not so far now. A moment’s hesitation: is the end near? Instinct whispers, ‘don’t move forward’. Fear whispers, ‘it’s too warm’. Confidence whispers, ‘the end could be near’. Fear moves forward. Confidence edges forward. The Heart beats faster. Sheild goes up. One step forward.

Instinct whispers, ‘don’t move forward’. Sheild goes down. One step forward. Confidence moves forward. The bonfire burns with possibility- it’s too warm. Two skips back.??

One step back. The Bridge- not too far now- has been crossed but there’s no going back. On the right, the bonfire glows in the distance. On the left- where’s the light? Up ahead, Uncertainty lies.

One step back. Instinct, Fear and Confidence lurk in the darkness. Another step back.
