The bridge

How do you share your success with others?

Are you that person who share a table with hungry people but you swallow a plateful of meals as others watch?

Let us learn the art of sharing the little we have with others. Let us also build  bridges for those behind us.

For the love of poems, I share my sentiments with you through a poem.

 At the edge of the marsh

​​​​​​I will stick and unstuck myself

with a heap of the harvested reeds

I take my very first step

steps towards the ocean

where my long journey takes off 


A point where construction begins

construction of the ever strongest bridge

with the risk of its inhabitants

I will dive and swim across, but 

I will still remain strong and focused

for the care in me burns with flames


The struggle is real, but

behind me is the bridge

a bridge woven from the reeds 

a step way for those behind me

for I need to share a bite with them

a bite of the sweetest fruit

a fruit that only grows at the edge of this ocean 

Much love.
