NAPOWRIMO ~ Day 24 ~ Bridges Built with Faith ~

 Today, I challenge you to do the same (for one day, at least), and to write a poem that features walls, bricks, stones, arches, or the like.

I see from above, this land abound
only one land mass, one ground
open to view amid the vast ocean blue, 
no line, no divide all in one stride, 
all in one piece like a bridge,

linking all
brick by brick, arch by arch
curve by curve,edge by edge
unlike walls forsaken
built around lands taken-

wailed against sobbed with,
shot blindfolded before
innocent guilty or mistaken,
till ages pass and generations awaken,
they are blasted and broken,

bridges are links that connect
make way for  ease and defect
to safer havens and escapes
to greener pastures and landscapes

lets build more bridges
connect the rivers and the ridges
 lets not shoot doves and partridges,
casting fire on distant lands
leaves us all stranded on bare stands

Earth shakes and many stumble
Iron stone  or brick wall
eventually will break and fall
But Bridges built with faith and truth
will remain to support in any domain.
