Wooden Bridge

She’s walking among the trees,
The autumn wind is blowing those colorful leaves,
With every step she sees something beautiful but passes it by.
Her heart is seeking peace and comfort,
Her mind is seeking the answers to so many questions.

She has fallen into the stormy water
Fighting the mighty river but she’s slowly slipping away,
Trying to grab anything to pull her up,
But her fears make her fingers lose their grip,
All her strength is gone and she’s forgotten how to fight.

She’s nearly lost hope and she just stopped trying,
All she can see is the water and it’s pulling her under,
She’s beginning to wonder if there ever was such a thing as land,
One last cry escapes her lips as she is dragged under,
She’s given all she had and now she can do no more.

She is sinking and losing sight of the light,
Her eyes can no longer see so she reaches out one last time,
She brushes up against something solid and stable,
Grasping the branch she begins to find hope,
She reaches the surface to breathe the fresh air

She’s reached the top of the branch and collapses,
Looking around she found herself on a little wooden bridge,
Tears roll down her eyes as she slowly stands,
Grasping the rail she makes her way toward the stable ground,
She’s discovered the bridge to a new start away from those stormy waters.
And again another new one...This one is partially a metaphor...well I guess Rain and Sunshine is partially metaphor as well. The river and the girl's struggles are basically referring to the last two weeks, as well as this last summer for me in particular but there have been many other times like them before. The bridge was a real place though, but it is also partially a metaphor.
But ya'll can look at it any way you want too
