BRIDGE OF HOPE

Life
The bud struggling with itself
Longing to burst into flower
And sacrifice herself to the sun

Nations locked in inner turmoil
Searching for the sun

People thirsting for freedom

And then a Cadillac rolls past
A homeless person under the bridge
Their eyes meet in shock of recognition
They are the same

Frightened lonely adults
Trapped in life.

– Che Chidi Chukwumerije.
