From his spot on the bridge,
everything seemed so much clearer
and he suddenly could not believe how long
he had spent staring at grey clouds,
how long he had forgotten about the sun.
A sense of freedom erupted in his being, beginning in his toes and ending in his
head, where it began to swallow the parasites that had created a home in his brain.
No longer did he feel like a car stalled out and running on empty--
Today he was a man capable of seeing the sun.
Today he was a man running towards tomorrow.
