Road Work

Posted by: Richenda at Tuesday July 29, 2014 in

Stuck
in road construction
I can see
the metaphor of church
from my place
in the line
I can see
the green light
God just ahead,
just ahead, but
I am completely stymied
by the flaggers and
obstructions—
stalls and thwarters—
barricaders—
in
the
way.
I do not know
whether to rejoice
in the repair,
rebuild & reconstruction,
or should I scream
in sheer frustration
at my paralysis,
at my paralysis,
so close,
so close,
so close,
to the light of God.
