Burning Bridges - Poem by K. E. C.

And she finally did it,
she dropped the last match
to burn the last bridge;
no more pain from her past
could come back-
she walked the dirt path and smiled;
finally the future actually belonged to her.

    This lifts my heart. As a reader I don't need to know about the past. The bridge is burned. It is the future that matters in this poem, and the decision to move into it. Really well written (Report) Reply
