Trying to repair past damage

Contrary to belief
the transgress bridges damage
was near impossible to repair
full of long standing snares
and hate from generations preceded
hanging heavy was the cursed moss

This bridge was well traveled
and well known for it's jeering course
many have tried in defeat 
some nearly fell through 
were caught in traps hanging helplessly 
trying to replace the slaughtered structure 

Waiting for the next hero to approach 
skeletons of failed journeys 
showcase signs of doubt

The pain seeps from every word in this poem and I can relate. But imperfection brings us both beauty and pain. They walk hand and hand. Mistakes are only lessons learned and experiences to grow from. Your honesty and realistic self examination is refreshing..........E

Embarrassing at times , but necessary to be transparent , if one plans on healing .. we can't cover our sins ..

Quite often the path to pain is the one we all commonly travel, as if the alternative is humanly unthinkable. Doomed to repeat the mistakes of those who came before us. Really thought-provoking writing, I truly enjoyed it!
