Finding Myself

The Third Mainland Bridge reminds me of Christ on the cross, sandwiched between two men of contrasting fortunes. One headed for the gilded streets of Heaven, the other resolutely headed for the crackling fires of Hell. Both men unified and split by the very thing which brings them together — fate.
