Hey where did the ground go?
I know it was just there!
I turned around and saw a sign
that only said BEWARE

This road is "Under Construction"
but why? It was just fine!
I guess some things need fixing up
like your life and like mine.

Sometimes even the biggest things
we often do not see.
So some roads do need fixing up
like the one that leads to me!

For my life's road hasn't been perfect
I am sure that you'd agree.
So my sign reads "Under Construction"
until the new me you can see!

Very nice, Echo! But just remember, we're all under construction until the day we are no more on earth! You're not alone!

I say...
We are all diamonds in the rough
taking years being polished and buffed.

Nice work on your poem...great anology.

I must agree with Denise here- I am always looking for ways to improve myself. I will never be done, because if I am, that means I am perfect in my own eyes. Anyone who is perfect in their own eyes is a God in their own eyes. And anyone who si a God in their own eyes is truly nothing but a self absorbed fool.

Melanie I'm glad you made the changes you did. That is cool. I'm also glad you didn't listen to me last night when I was so sleepy! I'm glad you kept that part the same.

I like this poem. Would hate to think that my "under construction" comes to an end before I do.
