“It cannot be done.” Oldest Man shook his head.
Young Man nodded. Oldest Man knew all things.
It was impossible. The chasm was too deep, the river too fast, the way too dangerous.
But they needed food. The animals were gone, the roots and berries eaten. They must go across the chasm to the forest. Or they would die.
He turned away, following the Oldest Man back to the village. Young Man wondered what to do.
He tried swimming the river, it was too strong.
He tried walking around the chasm. It was too far.
Young Man was exhausted. He sat down, and thought of the chasm.
It could not be done.
Young Man had a plan.
He would build a bridge.
Oldest Man laughed. He said it was foolish.
Young Man tried to build a bridge. The ropes broke, the wood snapped.
Oldest Man laughed at Young Man. He was foolish; he was a failure. He would never build a bridge.
It could not be done.
Then Young Man made one step.
He tried it. It creaked; it groaned. But it did not break.
He threw a rope across the chasm. It held.
Young Man worked all night. Step by step, he built a bridge.
In the morning, he showed it to Oldest Man.
He walked over the bridge, and back to the Oldest Man.
Oldest Man was angry. He cut the ropes.
The bridge fell.
Young Man stood by the chasm and wondered why Oldest Man had cut the ropes.
But the village needed food.
Young Man knew he could build a bridge.
So he built it again.
The bridge stood fast, the ropes held, the wood didn't break.
The Young Man went to the forest and brought back food for the village.
Everyone ate and was satisfied.
Even Oldest Man.
