BURN YOUR BRIDGES


(This is for anyone who has fought to make difficult changes in their life. Don Henley said it best; "Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge.")

Dewey Bridge Burning Pictures, Images and Photos

Burning a bridge can light the way
To an unseen path or a bright new day

You can retreat from troubled men
Just listen; your heart will tell you when…

Then walk from dark times toward new light
Bury your history with the night

Take the chance to forge life your way
Don't let your mistakes determine today

Lift your head, the passage is clear
When you do what is right you need not fear

If you take a stumble or two,
Just pick yourself up with resolve anew

To endeavor all that much keener
Towards attaining a peaceful demeanor

Some may chaff and won't comprehend
As above the fray you start to ascend

Others will try to pull you down
Keep moving forward with no need to frown

Just burn those bridges come what may
Resplendent fires kindle to make way

For a life that you will be proud of
Overflowing with hope and filled with love!
