Burn Some Bridges

Poetry By: Graham Andrews

A few years ago I decided to live my life for me....not just to be at the beck and call of others.

I had to burn some bridges

So I had to learn to walk

I had to burn those bridges

Say goodbye to all my folks

I was forever in the shadows

I had never felt the Sun

So I had to leave those shadows

I had to learn to run

Don't quite know where I'm going

Not sure when I will stop

But I have to keep on moving

Until I think I've reached the top

I had so many fears

I was too afraid to shine

Had to shake off all those fears

To fulfill this life of mine

I know that I shall get there

Shed the years of such frustration

I know that I shall get there

To my final destination.
