There is a bridge on which I stand, useful only in that it provides me with an ability to soothe others' concern. Me, I'd rather be in the roiling water beneath it than stay standing on this bridge, unable to cross it - either forward or back.
So, I plan to burn this bridge. Soon, as soon as I've fulfilled my obligation, I will light a match. Whether my flame only chars the structure or leaves it in ruins, I don't care. I have no intention on remaining stuck on this bridge.
No, I don't have another built. No, not even the foundation of one. I'm sorry if that worries you, but I'm burning this bridge before it consumes me. I can swim.
