Together we bridge the gap.

GOPR0502 hermanus bay

How do we bridge the gap

Created by anxiety or anger

The emotions that ripple-effect

Pushing back

I can’t reach or won’t reach

Till I resolve to make a way

Coming forwards

Owning my baggage

Acknowledging the impact on you

Only as we want to work together

no ifs’ or buttes

Only as we let go

of expectations

Only as we reach out

to freedom

even if it seems foolish

Can we bridge the gap we create for ourselves.

Never be too proud to say:

‘I am sorry’ or

‘I need you’

In our humility we find ourselves

Going forward


Stronger than ever.


This poem is a part of An African trip, Day 2
