Life And Death Poem by Tobi Awodunmila

Life And Death

Rating: 4.0


Is this a normal bridge?

I use to think bridge
Are meant to link towns
They are meant to be built
And could sometimes be expensive
They have definite length
Regardless of who pass through
But there is this funny bridge
It didn’t link town
Neither did it link cities
It length is not definite
It’s not expensive
So much than the poor can afford it
It is this bridge
That link life and death

we all walk on
both good and bad
without knowing the end
it could be long for some
it could be short fot others
but the truth is
we are all on a bridge
and time will surely tell
how long we are going to walk

I'm not sure that I understand the poem yet it would be easier if you could go into more depth. But I get the bit that life and death are morealess the same any way
