Crossing that Bridge

When we look into the future,
Lots of question marks abound;
The most important one, of course,
Is if we’ll be around.

Assuming that we will, we might
Commence with making plans;
But sometimes people vacillate,
For looming are the spans…

The bridges – which we cannot cross
Until they’re in our sights.
Preparing things too early
Feeds disaster’s appetites.

And so we wait and hesitate
And maybe take a loss,
‘Cause ‘til we come upon that bridge,
We cannot get across.

    Bridges burn for what we yearn and then tomorrow comes. The best that we can hope for is that we don't end up bums. Peace. :)
