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
