For the Poetic Traditions Contest.

I have crossed my last bridge,
The bridge of no return.
Too many I have crossed,
Not thinking they would burn.
This time I read the words,
Those on that one way sign
Then I knew each I crossed
Was only for one time.
I think I crossed my last,
Will walk an unknown road,
Not knowing for how long,
Or the weight of each load.
Bridges over water
And those above the land,
We cross every day,
Made by the workers hand.
Those that we pass over
Only once and then burn.
They are the ones of life,
Bridges of no return.
