Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Connector – Sept. 23, 2021

A large moon overshadows the lighthouse
The iron bridge stands testimony to time
Ghosts linger, waiting for the day
Someone finds their story
Hidden in the lighthouse
They pray for the day 
it is found and put into print
This they believe will free their souls
I remember my grandfather 
telling me a few of the stories
I don’t believe they will find freedom in print
It would condemn them further
Their deeds too horrendous to spell out here
They must find a different way
To cross the bridge to salvation…
