“Same Strength” – Nayana Nair

The bridges fell one day
leaving me stranded on the other side of the place
that could have been my home.
A home.
I realized only when I was placed out of it.

These bridges that betray me now
have once been the only companion to my lonely feet.
All that kept me alive
have turned against me, and it hurts
only because I remember the days
when I loved them for the same strength
that they now use against me.


  1. Nayana… Those bridges represent family.
    Simply said yet very thought provoking.

      Yes, they do. Those bridges are our family and friends who are biggest strength and biggest weakness.
