When the time comes to cross them

Are you ready?

Did you prepare yourself for this moment?

Did you bring your best shoes?

Or will you fall?

Will there be a railing there to catch you

Or icy rushing water below?

Either way it doesn’t matter

Because nothing can prepare you

You may as well be jumping off a cliff

Throwing yourself in front of a bus

An exploding bomb

Because no

You are not prepared

Walking across this bridge

Is stepping across another milestone

A milestone of chaos

Right now I would rather be in the icy water

Six feet under

Than crossing this bridge

But everything has a time and place

And my time is here

And now

Walking to the other side of this bridge.
