We are building bridges that were broken
over rivers that we filled with wild waters –
don’t look down.
We are pushing for the future
while trying to avoid, avoid the past –
don’t look back.
We have forgiven but not forgotten
we do not have the means or the words to say
we’re “sorry” or “you were wrong” –
don’t speak now.
The bridge is fragile, fragile, fragile
but strong enough to hold
we can reach the other side
if only we let go
