Bridge the Gap

Life is not easy with hardships, embarrassments, predicaments, and impediments but you must maintain your hope, desire, faith, and fire. These qualities will bridge the gap over the barriers and traps of life. Just like this photo of the Waco Suspension Bridge, we can build things that bridge the gap to impediments. The bridge in the photo was built for commerce to cross over the Brazos River and used as a part of the Chisholm Trail as they drove cattle up to Kansas in the 1800’s. Without the bridge, it was a time-consuming and sometimes dangerous ordeal to cross the river.

Step Ahead

Bridge the gap over the barriers and traps of life. Just like this photo of the Waco Suspension Bridge Waco Texas -built for commerce to cross over the Brazos River and used as a part of the Chisholm Trail

There are hardships,
Embarrassments,
Predicaments,
Impediments.

It’s not easy
And there will be
Defeats along the way
But here is the key.

Maintain your hope;
Maintain your desire;
Maintain your faith
And maintain your fire.

These qualities
Keep you out of a trap;
Over the barrier
And bridge the gap.

So turn your dreams
Into reality
And set to achieve
All you are meant to be.
