At this bridge

I am the one who

stands with humanity

at this bridge in time

between futures possible

and the certainties

of the past that

bought me to this point.


I am part of this

emerging and evolving

strident humanity

that has an unstated

belief in its own

place in the schemes

of the universe.


But at this bridge in time

I am not so sure any more

of these schemes or this place

and to where the planet

wants to take me

or where I, among many,

are taking the planet.
