“May the bridges I burn light the way”
― Moosa Rahat
I was always taught not to burn bridges…
but lately I find myself getting out dynamite,
lighting the fuse,
and blowing the bitches to smithereens.
“I don’t burn my bridges. I use nuclear weapons to vaporise them.”
― Wayne Gerard Trotman
Some things from my former lives no longer belong.
Attitudes I had,
friends (loosely stated),
things I used to tolerate,
middle school drama,
and more that I will not list,
lest this thought process turn into angst.
“Stop telling me not to burn bridges. Some bridges are meant to be burnt, some roads are never meant to be traveled again.”
― Steve Maraboli
Truth be told, I avoid long bridges.
I never feel safe in crossing them.
Perhaps it’s my fear of heights
maybe the swaying in high wind,
or the slipping and sliding in snowy weather,
or my propensity to want to jump over the edge.
But I would rather go around, if possible.
I will go through the abyss, rather than over.
“She lit fire to the bridges and forts she built all these years, and she walked into it smiling and tears rolling down her cheeks.”
― Akshay Vasu
Traveling through the grief abyss,
instead of taking the bridge
It allowed me to burn to the ground,
turn to ashes,
and rise stronger than ever before.
“Sometimes the bridges you burn light the way out of your darkness, but the memory of the blaze will be burned into your heart and mind forever.”
― Shannon L. Alder
Burning bridges has allowed me to rethink
what I will and will not tolerate
what I want from life
and the future.
“I was told many times not to burn bridges. It made me feel like once I burned a bridge, that was it. Now I feel that It’s not the burning of bridges that matters, but the Rebuilding from there that counts.”
― Leticia Rae
I was always taught not to burn bridges,
but blowing them up has been
not only the most heartbreaking,
but the most enlightening experience
of my life.
