A Bridge Over Troubled Water

By: Poet Keri

A Bridge Over Troubled Water is a bridge that I pave.
I pave at my own pace, I pave at my own speed.
Although, when I started, I paved at a turtle-slow pace,
because I am paving a bridge over troubled water.

That Troubled Water is where I let out my troubles.
The Water is filled with my thoughts and my tears.
As time allowed me, I paved at a medium pace,
because I am paving a bridge over troubled water.

Soon, the bridge is half-way done,
and I look at the outcomes.
I visit the pond more and more, and I paved at a normal pace,
because I am paving a bridge over troubled water.

Now I am finished.
Now my troubles are over.
The Bridge is the bridge that I have crossed throwing my troubles into the pond, leaving them behind to sparkle the water.
I pave no more, my job is done,
Because I finish paving a bridge over troubled water.

    Wow i'm amazed that you wrote this at 11! At that age i couldn't even write Cat with Hat! You truely have an amazing talent

    But some i recomment you keep a syllable count and try to create a rhythem. Some lines are a bit long and others too short. Don't worry this happens to me too :)

    Best of luck
