Burn Your Bridges

                            
Don't burn your bridges

                
"Don't burn your bridges."
What a quote.

Not all bridges must stay.
No, not all.

Some come to our lives.
But for a while.

When you cling on thereafter.
            You hurt your soul.
They hurt your soul.
            You hurt their soul.

Burn such bridges.
I tell you my friend.

Don't fortify a bridge.
That is done with you.

Don't force doors open.
That has done its work.

When they close a door.
Leave it closed.

When a bridge gives way.
We build another.

When God closes a door.
He opens another.
