Bridge

A bridge connects

A wall separates

A wall is a barrier

that creates division

Severance prohibits inclusion

and exhibits seclusion

A bridge adjoins

that creates unity

Communion reports with sympathy

and comports with empathy

Spanning a chasm

makes the journey possible –

forth and back. back and forth –

life like love goes both ways.

Walls are partitions

that promote boundaries

Separation restricts concord

and constricts accord

Bridges are crossings

that promote openness

Exchange reduces separation

and induces cooperation

Walls conceal

Bridges reveal

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
