The Bridge

Maybe we all need to die, 
then maybe there would be enough space 
for those left to see... 
the hurts and pains of generations past was 
for naught... Hate only breeds ugliness. 
I think the Bridge we built to cross that gap
is burning, again.

      
                                              The Bridge

(The Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case will never be fully understood for years till we can look back and reflect over what happened. Space is what is needed so that others can step back and say "Oh, I see". Now, we are so close to it all we'll ever have is a short nose.)

    Very strong title and a deeper meaning of this poem is revealed in the end. Nice.
