Standing on the Bridge “Poem”

Last evening I was standing on the bridge over Hillsborough river

Man is something that must be surpass I said to myself

My sufferings crossed all thresholds like Jesus being crucified

I looked down at calm water with flashes

What if I Jump?

All would end just one brave act and one breath to lose?

For an hour I contemplate my courage

But I was so near to Jump what stopped wonder O sun over my soul

Let life be gone let it all go

To think too much is an actual disease

I put my step further and felt the wind kissing my face

Two people came running and shouting

Is everything okay?

I quickly step back and walk away from the bridge

They followed me until I was far away in the middle of tall buildings of downtown

How can I explain to any one

I was experiencing for my character in the novel
