    Because of DD for the photograph


They’re repaving the road I stay on, Lord,
and although it is solely about half accomplished
– it is actually an amazing enchancment… 

However after we first obtained phrase there’d be development,
heavy equipment and a technique visitors  
– all of us complained (and straight away)
of the inconvenience, the interruption, 
the late night time noise and the backed-up visitors…
We’re like this Lord, in some ways:
    we wish our roads straight and clean,
    away from bumps and potholes,
    loads of room for passing, 
    exits: easy-on-and-off,
    and toll-free all the best way!

However our life’s street’s a piece in progress:
    beneath development, 
    in want of restore;
    detours and gradual downs,

    pace traps and tolls,
    rush hour visitors and solar in our eyes! 

Oh, there are straight-away stretches
the place visitors is gentle,
the street floor clean
and the lights all inexperienced;
the place you make good time
and you do not get misplaced…
However, by and enormous, we have to be affected person,
not shocked when the street crews are out,
however grateful and looking forward to the work in progress 
    that we’d journey one other mile,
    navigating the bumps and the potholes
    making our manner across the subsequent bend, 
    touring only a day at a time,
    till the street brings us house to you…
