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
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
Walking to the other side of this bridge.
