One step. Two steps.
Will I take the ominous walk through an unfamiliar bridge?
It’s an unstable and rotting structure
with truths masked
and there is a higher chance of you falling to oblivion
than ever making it to the other side.
But will you?
Even if you are given no warranty,
no receipt of purchase
not a single fortifying evidence to make a claim?
One step forward. One step back.
It is a dizzying journey of uncertainty
I suffer of nausea from vertigo
so I need to let go.
I need to collect. I need to retreat.
I need to go away.
Far away where the bridge is unseen
and not inviting me to cross
But I took one step and another
moving towards the field of dreams
the comforting touch
the placating whisper
the uplifting urges that promised change
Every given day I take one step forward, one step back,
never going anywhere
That’s the truth
So, will you cross?
Should I cross?
Should I leave?
