Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #47 – Imagine a world with no bridge


Imagine a world with no bridge
Forget crossing the other side
No swinging as agile or spry
As you thump your fist to your heart

And as I plague you with questions
Imagine a world with no bridge
No spraying graffiti on walls
The real drama is on tap

We go through our lives everyday
Meeting lots of people and foes
Imagine a world with no bridge
Tough if we get stuck on one side

If there’s no bridge to cross over
How do we know there’s other side?
That we can venture out and taste?
Imagine a world with no bridge*

* Quatern


In the journey of life, it’s not always smooth sailing
Rough ways, getting lost, storms and other set-backs
We can’t stand still as the sky might fall
After rainy days we see flowers blooming
The daffodils, tulips, bluebells and the lilacs
We go through life, don’t have to look for cure-all

When we see a bridge, do we stop or cross it?
Do we choose another way or see where it leads?
And when life is not going according to our plans
It’s tough, problems come and go but let’s not quit
There’s always a reason, all according to our deeds
Think of the future generation, think of our clans

Like a vicious cycle that keeps on repeating itself
Do we go with the waves or find another way?
Do we weep for the lost dream or create a new one?
Whatever we do, we’re all responsible for ourselves
Be they bright or grey, be swayed and find our way
Life is brilliant, let’s not give up and let’s have fun
