As I held the lit match, I gave it one last thought. I agreed with myself that it wasn't the most reasonable thing to do. But, then again, there was no there was no other option. I lightly tossed it forward and watched the flames shoot up. It wasn't the first bridge that I had torched and probably not the last. I had actually gave this one some thought. It wasn't a huge bridge, more like a fallen tree over a creek but, nevertheless it may end up burning down the whole forest now. It, like most, stemmed from a misunderstanding. A very normal problem of mine. A normal problem for an abnormal person. It's not that I hate people, I just hate how people act. Do you hear that drumbeat? I do too but, I always choose my own beat. And in there lies my problem. I can't go with the flow. Not when I see too many ideals that are warped. Expressing my disapproval of such had led to many believing that I am a complainer or that I just flat out suck. Either way I really don't care. I am proud to take a stand. I am not two faced nor do I talk out of both sides of my mouth. I don't consider it "bitching" when I take the side against overpriced basketball shoes, cellular phones, or standing in lines for the like. Whatever happened to true values? And I'm not talking about hardware stores. I am talking about caring about real issues. Not issues like someone wearing Jordans with a Kobe shirt. Who cares? You? Then I to ask you "Aren't there better ways of advancing our society?"
Yes, I go my own way. And very often it's very unpopular. I won't close my eyes and pretend that the crap in the world doesn't happen. I find it amazing that so many people can.
Anyway, getting back to the bridge, I made my point. Even though most won't get it and I will once again go misunderstood. But I am fine with it. I've got my graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate on stand by for the next bridge. I'm sure it won't be long.
